Mayor McNamara Recognizes Successful Workforce Development Program

ROCKFORD, Ill. – In April, City Council passed a Workforce Development Agreement
with LT Construction, a local minority-owned concrete construction contractor,

to provide mentorship, experience and workforce development skills to young adults that represent at-risk and underserved populations of our community through an internship.

Mayor McNamara recognized the group for finishing the initial sidewalk work for the City, pouring 3,100 lineal feet of concrete.

 

“We hoped and anticipated that this program would provide a career pathway for members of historically underrepresented communities and open many doors of opportunity for these young people,” says Mayor McNamara. “We are thrilled that after this first phase, three out of the five mentees in the program have been hired by local contractors.”

 

With the initial phase complete, the City is now hiring three new workers for the next phase of concrete work with LT Construction.

 

Concrete work done during this program is helping to close gaps in our community by connecting people to schools, parks and other multi-use paths.
