The Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) is dedicated to providing immediate, effective and comprehensive employment services to men and women with recent criminal convictions.


The Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO), is recruiting for the CEO Academy, a trade preparation program that prepares participants with criminal convictions for entrance into trade school, supports them throughout training, and helps find them jobs in the trades after they finish training. Participants in the academy will receive their hands-on training at Hostos Community College or at LaGuardia Community College and receive a certificate from these fine institutions.

The Plumbing and Electricity training program at Hostos provides a comprehensive overview of both trades with an emphasis on Green Industry skills needed for an entry level position. The Carpentry training program at LaGuardia also provides a comprehensive overview of the trade, starting with a 10 hour OSHA safety class coupled with hands-on activities in a construction lab. The Carpentry training is recognized by the National Association of Home Builders.

The Academy will prepare participants for careers as highly skilled helpers in plumbing, electricity and carpentry.
