Save the Dates and RSVP: Important Upcoming Events From JobsFirstNYC
Since we have several
important events coming up and are getting some questions on how to
participate, we thought we would lay out the dates here for you. If you
have any questions about these events, you can contact Lou Miceli at email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you!
APRIL 23, 9-Noon: First Stakeholder Meeting for the Young Adult Sectoral Employment Project (YASEP)
a series of meetings earlier this year, we are planning for an
introductory meeting about the Young Adult Sectoral Employment Project.
All are welcome! Because of space constraints, we ask that you register
only two people per organization, and we ask that people who attend are
in a position to make decisions on behalf of your organizations.
purpose of the meeting will be to talk about this new project, discuss
how direct service workforce organizations, industry skills training
providers, employer intermediaries, and employers might participate in
this project and lay out the key phases of the project. As a key element
of this project is to build collaborative approaches, this meeting will
help interested organizations to identify potential partners. Participants
in this meeting will also understand how to submit a letter of intent
to participate in a YASEP learning community to be formed in the early
summer of 2013. You can learn more about this project by downloading an overview of the project (PDF).
A detailed e-mail was shared
with the field about this event last week, and if you have questions
about the meeting or those details, you can contact Evelyn
Fernandez-Ketcham at JobsFirstNYC by phone at 646-738-5677 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event will take place
at the Macaulay Honors College at City University, but due to space
constraints, RSVP's are required.
We are very pleased to
present the field with an up-to-date analysis of how out-of-school/work
young adults are faring in the New York City Labor Market. An e-vite
through Constant Contact went out to the field regarding this event
yesterday. We got an immediate response, so if you wish to join us,
please hurry to RSVP in order to reserve a seat. This event will take
place at the New York Times Building (in Times Square), and all are
welcome. You will hear from the authors of the report and we will
discuss the implications of this new study and how we might use the key
information it surfaces to better assist young people who remain at the
fringes of the labor market.
RSVP's are required for this event due to security regulations at the New York Times Building.
Support for this new report
was provided by the Altman Foundation, the Bodman Foundation, the Clark
Foundation, and the Valentine Perry Snyder Fund.
Farewell to Gwen Hill
We hope you will join us in extending our best wishes to Gwen Hill,
who joined us in November of 2011 and has done a range of things to
help build the organization in her role as Office Administrator. After
completing her graduate degree program earlier this year, she is joining
a non-profit organization in Brooklyn that is focusing on helping
empower and educate young people and to engage them in urban
agricultural and sustainability activities. She will still be connected
to the field, as one of her newer projects will involve working with
NYCHA residents in Red Hook through partnership with Green City Force.
Thanks for your great work Gwen, and congrats on your new role!
Stay tuned for new developments on the staffing front at JobsFirstNYC
