Help us Build NY, One Person at a Time!

Enjoy the following benefits of membership by participating in our program!

• Access to a developing workforce—Engaging motivated, and capable employees eager to learn a trade will make your company more successful. We help you fulfill your staffing needs by providing motivated employees who have been screened by Building Skills; have a high school diploma or equivalent, and an OSHA 10 safety certificate.
• Easier compliance with federal, state, and city hiring requirements on affordable housing projects— many affordable housing projects require developers to demonstrate that they are hiring from the local community. Here at Building Skills NY, we have the ability to help you meet these hiring requirements by placing our graduates by city, borough, neighborhood, or even New York City Community District.

• Networking opportunities with the state's leading affordable housing professionals--—Our program enjoys participation by some of the biggest names in the affordable housing industry, including developers, contractors, lenders, equity investors, and others.

• An opportunity to give back to the communities we all work in!
