Finding Local Employees for Job Sites
JINGOLI is committed to creating jobs and mentoring those who need the skills to obtain employment. As part of their community outreach program, they work with faith-based and community organizations, as well as local leaders and trades to identify those who want to be mentored in the building trades. Under their tutelage, these local residents become equipped to sustain a career in the industry.
Hiring in Atlantic City
JINGOLI sponsored a 12-week free training program in Atlantic City that educated 15 residents who had no prior construction experience and gave them jobs building the Gateway project, where Stockton University and South Jersey Gas will have facilities.
The students finished curriculum covering HVAC, electrical work and job site safety, and satisfied requirements of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration 30-hour program. Each will be offered jobs at JINGOLI or a subcontractor working on the Gateway Project.
