JCC Receives Funds From New York State
Jamestown Community College has received $541,765 from New York state to start a short-term advanced manufacturing training program.
JCC will launch a new short-term advanced manufacturing training program to prepare individuals for jobs in advanced manufacturing through CNC/Machining and machining technician programs. The eight- to 10-week programs will include training and trainee supports, preparing individuals for immediate entry into the workforce. The program will help workers in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties.
“These program awardees will provide professionals with the training and skills they need to compete in today’s fast-growing industries and help New York build back better,” said Gov. Andnrew Cuomo. “The state’s workforce must adapt in order to take full advantage of the opportunities in the rapidly changing economy, and our Workforce Development Challenge is giving Western New Yorkers the edge they need to succeed.”
Through three rounds of funding, the Workforce Development Challenge has awarded more than $5.6 million to 12 not-for-profit organizations in Western New York.
The $11.5 million Workforce Development Challenge is designed to promote and invest in innovative approaches to workforce training for unemployed and underemployed populations throughout Western New York.
