Port Jobs has been awarded workforce pathway funding as part of the $6 million Annie E. Casey Foundation Generation Work Initiative.
The initiative’s focus is to identify effective ways to connect low-income young adults ages 18-29 with training opportunities and jobs within the maritime, construction and advanced manufacturing industries. The ultimate goal is to develop reproducable programs which help unemployed young people build careers and develop skills that employers need.
