A FORCE IN WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
The Port of New Orleans contributes significantly to two of the State’s largest economic engines. To ensure that residents in our jurisdiction can access the jobs generated by the maritime and hospitality industries, Port NOLA is developing a workforce development program.
We are working collaboratively with our tenants, related industry businesses, educational institutions, economic development partners, elected officials and others to help connect job providers with job seekers. We are also working with local technical schools, community colleges and four-year colleges and universities to help ensure training opportunities match job needs.
Some of our education partners include:
- Delgado Community College
- Dillard University
- Nunez Community College
- Southwestern University
- Tulane University School of Professional Advancement
- University of New Orleans Transportation Institute
- Xavier University of Louisiana
