With seemingly no end to the development projects popping up throughout Westchester County, many young people are thinking about starting a career in construction. The problem? They don’t know how or where to start. The solution: FutureWorks, a FREE certifications and training program for people ages 16-24 years old. FutureWorks has been available to New Rochelle and Mount Vernon residents for a year, and new enrollment is now open for 2020.
“In just four weeks, participants can complete up to eight certifications and the relevant training needed to start their year – and their future – on a new path,” says Amrika Sieunarine, the director of the Center for College & Careers at The Guidance Center of Westchester.
In addition to the certifications and training, participants take part in hands-on job experiences, resume building workshops, and employment fairs.
The four-week course runs 9 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday, and takes place at The Guidance Center of Westchester offices at 256 Washington Street in Mount Vernon. Orientation takes place April 3 and the course runs April 6 through May 1, 2020.
FutureWorks if funded through the Westchester Community Foundation.
