Strengthening Our Community: Education and Employment Opportunities for west Dayton

Published on October 28, 2021 | Workforce Development General Interest

Sinclair College is incredibly proud to join our long-time partners, Montgomery County, Ohio (OH) and the Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC), in bringing vital services to our neighbors in west Dayton through the Montgomery County Employment Opportunity Center.

The Center will be a place for people in west Dayton to access services to help train for, find, and get in-demand jobs. The Center will also house two leadership academies, two community rooms, and a resource lab where individuals can get help with resume building, job searches and interview skills.

Sinclair will provide additional services through our Workforce Development Department and educational programming that includes entry-level Information Technology (IT) certifications and apprenticeship opportunities through Sinclair’s Work-Based Learning Department where students can earn while they learn.

“This project is all about building a strong workforce for our entire county,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman. “Partnering with Sinclair will enhance what is possible through the Employment Opportunity Center. People will be able to get IT training and work with our recruiters all in one location.”

Sinclair’s classroom/lab space will be flexible and allow for the addition or modification of course offerings to meet the changing workforce needs of the region. The space will also include office space for faculty and staff to meet with students to provide necessary support services.

“This initiative will enhance Sinclair’s commitment to providing greater equity for the West Dayton community,” Dr. Steve Johnson, President & CEO – Sinclair Community College.  “We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Montgomery County and other organizations to revitalize West Dayton and bring quality education and career services to its citizens.”
