MORE ABOUT OUR WORK

SBIDC’s workforce team looks forward to providing free employment services, connecting and preparing residents of Sunset Park, Gowanus and Red Hook with the quality jobs and careers it will create. “It’s gratifying to successfully place a jobseeker in a good job, but what’s even better is checking in with them and hearing how they are thriving.”

Wayne Small, Workforce1 Site Director

“It’s been deeply rewarding to be helpful throughout the pandemic. Through weekly informational webinars, daily phone and mail correspondence with businesses and our partners, I am not only providing technical assistance, but also learning how to support and counsel industrial and manufacturing businesses for both times of crisis and times of growth”.

Micaela Skoknic, Business Services Manager

“What makes our advocacy work successful is our ability to work in coalition with a diverse array of community stakeholders, including housing and environmental justice organizations. These partnerships have helped us expand our reach and show the importance of the manufacturing sector in strengthening and stabilizing our communities.”

Jesse Solomon, Deputy Director
