On Sept 19th, NRC Program Coordinator, Fiormelissa Johnson, had the opportunity to attend NYS Senator Joe Addabbo’s Job Fair at the Rockway/Arverne YMCA. Ms. Johnson stated, “There must have been over 400 people in attendance and thankfully it was very well attended by vendors as well.” In an effort to boost employment and provide additional resources to the Far Rockaway community, Senator’s Addabbo’s office contacted numerous companies and not-for-profits; many of which were hiring or, like the Northeast Resiliency Consortium (NRC), providing low cost training and employment readiness services to needed communities in New York City. Some of the companies that were in attendance were: Delta, NYC Police Department, Sears, AARP, Kingsborough Community College (NRC program), Avon and many more. “Overall, the Job Fair was a success, as you looked around the enormous gym, where the event was held, you can see nothing but smiling potential employees.”
