Mayor Brandon Scott to Announce New Job Training Program

On Wednesday, March 9, 2022, Baltimore City’s Mayor Brandon Scott will hold a press conference at the Jane Addams Resource Center to formally announce Train Up - a free job training to unemployed and underemployed Baltimore City residents impacted by COVID-19. Mayor Scott will be joined by representatives from his Office of Employment Development and the 17 community training partners selected to provide the training via grants totaling nearly $5 million, the largest single investment ever made in Baltimore workforce training. 

Train Up is funded by money Baltimore City received through the American Rescue Plan Act. Train Up grantees will provide training in skills essential to Baltimore City’s growing industries including hospitality, manufacturing, and technology.

The 17 grantees selected to carry out the training are: Baltimore Alliance for Careers in Healthcare, BioTechnical Institute of Maryland, Associated Builders and Contractors/Project JumpStart, Byte Back, Catholic Charities of Baltimore, Center for Urban Families, Civic Works, Equality Equation, Goodwill Industries, HOPE Inc., Jane Addams Resource Center, Maryland New Directions, NPower, Open Works, Per Scholas, UNITE HERE, and Vehicles for Change.

The Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development is committed to building a strong Baltimore City workforce by developing meaningful partnerships with the local business community and connecting citizens of all ages and backgrounds with jobs and pathways to careers.
