GABIDDC Workforce Training Initiative Community Forum Wednesday

This week, we are having a Community Forum leadership meeting towards finalizing efforts to get classes going. The gathering will be held on Wednesday June 28, 4:00-6:00 at the office of the Black Student Fund, 3636 16th St., NW, Suite A-21.

Our efforts to serve DC’s workforce, youth, and ensure that Walter Reed keeps promises to hire locally and support the community are ongoing. We aim at providing classes for folks seeking work, who need training and experience. Mike Jackson’s Training initiative in environmental remediation is on track. Hopefully we’ll be announcing further progress after this meeting. Walter Reed’s developer and the District Government see the need for these classes. Michael’s announcement to local leaders is here:

“GABIDDC.org and the Black Student Fund are sponsoring a community forum for businesses and leadership
interest of the government of the District of Columbia to discuss how to better build a city from within.
The topic of discussion is planning inclusive workforce applications, matched with CBE and DOES applications.
The questions to be answered, are how to generate the required threshold of 51% of the job’s opportunities
within economic development projects, matching scopes of work with CBE, non- CBE’s implementing projects
with developers and contractors over $500,000.00 dollars. The process currently in place lacks training for DC
residents requires prior to, rather than after bids for work are implemented.”

Finding the means to generate training application coupled within scopes of work is the basis of apprenticeship training. Please join us for this important forum. The objective is to develop best practice methodologies to grow a city from within. The gathering will be held on Wednesday June 28, 4:00-6:00 at the office of the Black Student Fund, 3636 16th St., NW, Suite A-21.
