Training City Residents for Job Opportunities at LCCC

Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray revealed efforts have been underway to prepare City residents to take advantage of the job opportunities presented by the Convention Center and Hotel project.

"The City, the Authority, Interstate Hotels, and CareerLink have teamed up with neighborhood-based non-profits to provide job readiness training for City residents," Mayor Gray told Lancaster City Council at their Tuesday evening public meeting.

Participants include the Inner City Group, SACA, Crispus Attucks, Brightside Opportunity Center, and the Puerto Rican Cultural Center.

"Our goal is to create a qualified pool of City candidates who are ready to fill the wide range of jobs that will be created when the project is complete," the Mayor said.
