How We Can Help

The Jerome Avenue Revitalization Collaborative (JARC) is an evolving partnership where services will continue to be built and evolve. Our initial goals and services will focus on the following four components:

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

EMPLOYER-FACING EMPLOYMENT NETWORK

This component provides local residents (based on zip-code) with direct referrals to jobs available through the partnership’s agreements with developers, employers and partners.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

ACT AS A LOCAL BUSINESS RESOURCE FOR EMPLOYERS

This component provides local business owners and employers with access to business development resources and support specific to their business needs that are made available through the partnership’s agreements with NYC agencies and other partners.

If you are a business owner looking for help with your business:

ADVOCACY

This component provides local residents, business owners, and employers with support in advocating for or against changes to the community that will impact workforce or economic development in the Jerome Avenue corridor.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOW-INCOME INDIVIDUALS TO COMPLETE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT TRAINING

This component provides local (low-income) residents with access to educational or workforce development training that they would otherwise not be able to afford on their own. Financial support for this component will be raised by the partnership through fundraising and other activities
