“The City’s job training and education programs have made a real difference in the lives of countless New Yorkers and they have contributed to reducing citywide unemployment down to levels not seen since before 9/11,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Their success is based in large part on the commitment of businesses and organizations that have been willing to believe in New Yorkers others had given up on. Thanks to the City’s partnerships with these organizations, thousands of New Yorkers are now climbing up the economic ladder and on the path to stronger, healthier lives.”
