Our New York Rising students recently received certificates after completing a “Train the Trainer” course facilitated by the Office of Emergency Management (OEM). Way to go!
NYC Emergency Management recognizes that undocumented migrants are hard to reach and generally mistrust government. To bridge this gap, NYCEM has a “Train the Trainer” program through which community leaders are trained to conduct emergency preparedness presentations. These trainings are generally conducted in English or Spanish. The community leaders go through a 3-hour training and are supported by NYCEM staff with emergency preparedness guides and talking points for their presentations.
Looking for a job? Are you a student in our program? If you answered yes to both of those questions, come check out our job/training bulletin board. It is constantly updated with information about various employment opportunities, so every day before class or after class or during your break, take a look! If you’re interested in one of the jobs on the board, don’t forget to take our counselor’s card so she can help you apply!
