Mayor Bowser to Announce DC Career Academy to Put More Residents on the Pathway to the Middle Class

Thursday, March 26, 2015
Academy to align residents with training and skills for high-demand jobs

Mayor Muriel Bowser along with Department of Employment Services (DOES) Acting Director Deborah Carroll will host a press event on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 11:30 am to announce the DC Career Academy. The DC Career Academy will streamline key aspects of the District’s myriad of workforce development programs and provide residents with the necessary skills they need to acquire high-demand jobs.

The DC Career Academy will link the city’s unemployed with employment, education, and training opportunities in growing fields such as information technology and skilled maintenance positions. The Academy will place residents in apprenticeship programs, allowing them to earn a wage while participating in an on-the-job training experience—a framework that will put them on the pathway to the middle class.

This event is part of Mayor Bowser’s Pathways to the Middle Class Tour, a week-long effort leading up to the March 31st State of the District Address to highlight ways the Administration is helping to create Pathways to the Middle Class for District residents.
