The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) has operated an on-site Employment Center for over 15 years, it is dedicated to connecting local residents to employment opportunities with any of its 330 tenants or local retailers. BNYDC has placed more than 2,000 people in quality jobs since 1999.
Recently, with the support of private funders, the BNYDC Employment Center has been able to deepen its community outreach, provide more services to local residents, and become a staffing resource for Navy Yard tenants and local businesses.
In addition to placement services, BNYDC partners with a consortium of job training providers led by Brooklyn Workforce Innovations (BWI) to offer training that pipelines to employment opportunities within the Navy Yard. The coalition, Brooklyn Workforce Collaboration (BWC), will bring breadth and depth of relevant experience to the Yard to create customized job training programs for employers.
