NCC, Local High School Pilot Vocational Program For Older Students

In an exciting new collaboration, New Community Workforce Development Center has partnered with Fast Track Academy to offer vocational training to older students who are on the cusp of adulthood but need job skills to secure their futures.

Known within Newark Public Schools as a transfer school, Fast Track Academy targets youth ages 16 to 20, who are "over age and under credit," using a non-traditional academic setting that Principal Mark Comesañas says aims to prepare students for either college or a career.


NCC Volunteer Keeps Serving Even After Landing New Job

When Anne Moran landed a new job, she felt no impulse to leave behind her role as a volunteer at the New Community Family Resource Success Center.

Initially placed at the Family Resource Success Center as part of the Community Work Experience Program (CWEP), Moran quickly became Director Joann Williams-Swiney’s point person for anyone seeking help paying their energy bills through NJ SHARES. NJ SHARES is a nonprofit that partners with authorized provider agencies, such as NCC, to help families in a financial crisis pay their electric and gas bills with a grant of up to $1,200.


Tucked Away Inside Nursing Home, NCC
Food Service Team Shines

At first glance, New Community Extended Care Facility appears to simply be a four-story nursing home that serves residents with an Alzheimer's disease and dementia day program, subacute care and rehabilitation services.

What most passersby miss, however, is the frenzy of activity taking place below, at the basement level, where the kitchen of Extended Care pulsates with activity as Executive Chef Joe Rodriguez and Food Service Director Jackie Henry lead a team that serves and feeds a vast network each day.
