Community Employment Program

The Community Employment team provides services to traditionally under-served populations (displaced workers and unemployed and underemployed individuals). These populations obtain supportive services for successful completion of programs and entry into productive employment with opportunities for advancement.

Our workforce development program embraces community organizations by providing a foundation of cooperation through local entities. We supply appropriate placement recommendations for project contractors and sub-contractors. Participants for employment are provided with quality educational courses, which promote self-sufficiency and meet employers’ needs.

The Community Employment Program provides the following services:

Community Outreach

The Community Outreach Team coordinates all project activities involved with the community engagement and interaction. McKissack conducts and supports community based event outreach meetings and promotes public informational workshops—an open dialogue to address community concerns and report ongoing progress to our clients. In addition, Community Employment staff will participate in bi-weekly progress discussions where contractors, Design and Construction staff and Construction Managers report on-going progress and utilize strategic systems to reach local and minority hiring goals.
