North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena, Council Member Robert Troiano, Jr., and the Town Board are proud to join with Nassau County and We Connect The Dots to present the Upskill Workforce Training Experience Program at the North Hempstead “Yes We Can” Community Center. The 8-week program will focus on workforce training and workforce experience. The program is designed for individuals ages 18-24.
“We Connect the Dots is a great resource for our residents to utilize, and I encourage those who are looking to acquire new skills for their resumes to take full advantage of these fantastic workshops,” Supervisor DeSena said. “Thank you to Nassau County and We Connect the Dots for partnering with the Town to present workforce training and workforce experience opportunities that will help our residents find new and meaningful employment opportunities.”
“We are excited to have this partnership with We Connect The Dots to offer this workshop for our residents,” said Council Member Robert Troiano, Jr. “This 8-week program will provide participants with marketable technological skills that will make them job ready. It is a viable alternative for that segment of the population for whom college is not an option.”
The workforce training program will take place form May 31 through June 27 and will teach participants skills such as: website development, Microsoft Office 365, Dynamics, no code, drag and drop applications, communication, collaboration, and career exploration.
The workforce experience component of the program will be held for 8-weeks from June 28 through July 27 and explore on-the-job workforce experience at a participating employer. It will teach participants about applying their new skills in a real world setting and include career coaching, a capstone project, and resume and LinkedIn building skills.
