SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The push is on to get more diverse talent into workforce here in Central New York.

New tech training programs are coming to Central New York to help support the Syracuse surge innovative. The goal is to get a more diverse group of people employed in coding, cyber security, call center jobs and high tech manufacturing.

“The purpose of this innovative is to bring more diverse talent into Syracuse employers and Syracuse businesses to really find the people who already have some of these skills but need the training, the access, and the support to get into these jobs and be successful,” says Aimee Durfee, director of Workforce Innovation at CenterState CEO.

Through this innovative CenterState CEO is bringing together employers and job seekers with Le Moyne College, SUNY EOC, and other partners to train people for these roles.

“We’re specifically targeting jobs that are in high demand, that are good paying jobs, and we’re giving people the tools, the training, the support, the stipends, and all of the things that they need to be successful,” says Durfee.

The programs will target a workforce of nearly 300 residents connecting them to training and jobs over the next year.
