New Community Hosts LISC Employees From Throughout U.S.
New Community Corporation hosted a group of about 60 new employees of Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Nov. 7. The employees, who were from various parts of the country, got an overview of what NCC offers during a luncheon at St. Joseph Plaza, 233 West Market St., Newark. They then toured New Community Workforce Development Center main campus at 274 South Orange Ave., Newark, to see the facility and hear about its work with the Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) and with the Bridges to Career Opportunities (BCO) programs that LISC helps fund. Finally, they got to see the Automotive Training Center, 210 West Bigelow St., Newark, and learn more about the Automotive Technician, Diesel Technician and Building Trades Specialist programs offered.
