May 15, 2012: News & Updates from JFNYC

Join us to Network & Share Ideas with your Job Developer Colleagues
6.19 JD Networking event Flyer
JobsFirstNYC and WPTI are pleased to announce the date for our next Job Developers' Networking Breakfast.  The event will take place on June 19th from 8:30-10a.m. in downtown Brooklyn.

As with our past Networking Breakfasts, registration is required; click here to register.  We look forward to seeing you at this event!
National Work Readiness Credential (NWRC) Survey
JobsFirst is soliciting the feedback of workforce practitioners on how they are implementing this national credential in their daily work. 

JobsFirstNYC has prepared a confidential survey to collect information concerning the cost of adopting the NWRC, the ease or difficulty in adapting your work readiness curriculum, the number of persons that your organization prepared for the exam and the number of people who passed it.

If you have not already, please take a few minutes to share your impressions of and/or experience with implementing the NWRC by taking our short survey.

Your input is valuable and will inform our presentation to NYSDOL regarding concerns with how the NWRC may effect workforce practitioners and youth in NYC.
