Seats still available
In preparation for current and upcoming hotel and casino hiring cycles, Mayor Brian Arrigo is encouraging Revere residents to consider participation in a free hospitality career training program offered by The Neighborhood Developers’ CONNECT program in partnership with the International Institute of New England. The training includes support in interview preparation, resume building, job placement and financial coaching.
The first of two, 2.5 week training cycles will begin on May 29 at Youth In Motion at 85 Broadway. Seats are still available. To apply, call 857-334-3406 or visit www.connectnow.org/hospitality, or come to CONNECT at 4 Gerrish Avenue in Chelsea (drop-in hours Monday-Friday 10-4 and Wednesdays 10-7). Past graduates of the program are now employed as restaurant workers, cleaners, porters, customer service representatives, drivers and security officers.
“With an influx of local hospitality employment opportunities, our priority is making sure Revere residents have every opportunity to compete,” Mayor Arrigo said. “We’re proud to collaborate with The Neighborhood Developers and IINE to offer this training to our residents free of charge.”
The free training for Revere residents is made possible through a $100,000 commitment from the City of Revere and a $50,000 grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development in 2018.
