Train-to-Hire, unique training program for construction trades, graduates class in New Brunswick

July 30, 2021 | ROI-NJ

Eleven students from the New Brunswick area, many with limited or no prior construction experience, graduated this week from Train-to-Hire, a unique 12-week training program designed to provide them with knowledge and skills necessary for a career in the construction industry.

The class, sponsored by New Brunswick Development Corp. and Jingoli in partnership with RWJBarnabas Health and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, will support the development and construction of the Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center, the state’s first freestanding cancer hospital.

An integral part of the Devco/Jingoli community outreach initiative, Train-to-Hire is structured to provide the next generation of residents — as well as residents seeking a career change — with the opportunity to enter a career in the construction industry, through in-person training and professional development, with an emphasis on community service.
