EDUCATE THE BLOCK (ETB)
EDUCATE THE BLOCK At NJCU (ETB) is a Training Program that teaches Hospitality, Media Production, Career Development and Personal Development Programs to the adult urban population in Hudson County. With the help of New Jersey City University, we are able to facilitate vocational certification programs in an atmosphere where people can experience the pride of their accomplishments. We support self-sufficiency by providing quality training for struggling populations.
First we educate and train. Then we encourage our clients to push the boundaries of what’s possible by preparing them to be well qualified, well rounded and well prepared for the workforce. Lastly, we create and identify employment opportunities and advocate for their placement. Our program is designed to inspire a diverse community of learners to achieve a broader range of success.
ETB provides a 4 week Pre-Occupational Program, a 5 month Hospitality Industry Occupational Program, a 5 month Media Production Occupational Program and a 4 week Job Search/Career Development Program. All of our programs are designed to give students a series of core soft skill workshops along with comprehensive industry training so that students can create clear paths for themselves.
