Monroe #1 BOCES Participates in REJob Training Program

 On May 13, 2017, Monroe One BOCES and the participants of the City of Rochester Department of Environmental Services Job training program celebrated the graduation of 29 city residents who participated in the REJob Training Program.The REJob Training Program is a federally funded program for underemployed and unemployed City Residents as a part of Mayor Lovely Warren's Stairway Out of Poverty Initiative.  This 8-week program provided remedial reading, math and science education at Monroe One's Irondequoit TOPS Plaza location.

Students also received life skills training and training certifications needed for jobs in the asbestos abatement, hazardous waste site cleanup and general construction fields.  All graduates have already secured full-time employment in the environmental construction fields.  All will be followed for the next two years in the field, with the opportunity to advance in their careers. Monroe One BOCES is proud to be affiliated with this venture, which will be offered again next year under the two year grant awarded to the City by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
