LaGuardia partners with Skanska & NYC Department of Small Business Services to provide information needed to create jobs
Long Island City, NY (Nov. 10, 2016) – The Construction Management Building Blocks—a free, collaborative program between LaGuardia Community College, Skanska USA, and the NYC Department of Small Business Services provides opportunities for minority and woman-owned business enterprises (MWBE). The seven-week course supplies entrepreneurs with the knowledge needed to secure contracts, obtain new work, and create jobs.
“LaGuardia Community College’s Business Services department has worked in partnership with Skanska for the past two years. It is gratifying to know that our partnership will be helpful in building the capacity of minority and women-owned businesses who in turn may support the redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport. This is yet another way that our community college is impacting the community!” — Linda Mellon, Executive Director of Business Services at LaGuardia Community College
