Help for Immigrant Workers


This just in from the Long Island Council of Churches:

The State Department of Labor has a host of free programs designed to help immigrants break into the workforce. The New York State Department of Labor is addressing the language/employment barrier with a new program designed to help immigrants navigate the working world and learn English as well. Immigrant workforce counselors are set up at the State Labor Department’s one-stop centers in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Flushing, Patchogue, Yonkers, Buffalo, Syracuse and Utica and they can provide assistance in a wide variety of languages. They also refer clients to English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. All of the Immigrant Workforce Project programs are free. For more information, visit
