Orange Mayor Provides Jobs through First Source Program Saturday April 18


ORANGE, NJ - Mayor Dwayne D. Warren, Esq. and RPM Development, under the supervision of Construction Supervisor Troy Webster has created a program called "First Source" with redevelopment organizations and their subcontractors to employ residents of the City of Orange Township through redevelopment projects.

Mayor Warren will host a job fair for employment opportunities related to First Source on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the Y.W.C.A. located at 395 Main Street in Orange.  This is a free event, open to the public.

TAP Into spoke briefly with Mr. Webster about the program and he expressed his genuine excitement about the commitment of the City of Orange to ‘provide real opportunities for local area residents to find meaningful employment’ through construction.

The event will feature a discussion regarding immediate employment on a current redevelopment project and additional construction sites that will offer future opportunities.   The "First Source"  program ensures that each of the contracts awarded to the developer and their sub-contractors for all trades provides an employment opportunity for Orange residents. Currently, 100% of the employment opportunities for the current phase of development with the Tony Galento project have gone to people living below the federal poverty level.  Mayor Warren said, "This program provides direct economic improvement opportunities for families who live in our City." 

To complement the First Source program, Mayor Warren is initiating a larger career readiness program and would like to partner with Essex County College, Get Our Youth Back (GOYB) and Father's Now.  This collaboration will provide academic certification credentials in career fields related to construction.  To ensure all interested applicants are workforce ready the associated non-profits will provide resume writing classes, clothing and interview preparation instruction and simulation classes.

For applications contact the First Source Program Coordinator Keith Harvest at (973) 266- 4158.
