KCC Announces Presence In Coney Island

Brooklyn, NY – Kingsborough Community College (KCC) is once again partnering with the Alliance for Coney Island to provide community residents with information about job training and educational resources available at the College to help connect residents with employment opportunities in Coney Island and beyond.

Beginning Tuesday, February 7, 2023, and continuing every other Tuesday, KCC representative Hillary Stackpole will be on-site at the Alliance’s office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., located at 1904 Surf Avenue. Stackpole, the program administrator of K-BON (Kingsborough Bridges to Opportunity Network), will offer one-on-one sessions, providing information about KCC credit (degree) and non-credit (Continuing Education/Workforce Development) programs. She is also available to conduct presentations for local organizations.

KCC offers a variety of job-training programs through its workforce development division, some of which are free. They also offer opportunities to convert time training into college credits, leaving applicants well on their way to earning a college degree.

“As Brooklyn’s only community college, it is incumbent upon Kingsborough to be a valuable resource to the community of its close neighbors in Coney Island. We are thankful to the leadership of the Alliance for Coney Island for working closely with Kingsborough to better serve the educational and workforce training needs of the community. By providing the one-on-one guidance and advisement, we know it will be an invaluable resource for local residents.” said Dr. Simone Rodriguez, vice president for Workforce Development, Continuing Education and Strategic Community Partnerships at Kingsborough.

“Residential Coney Island provides much of the labor, intellect and spirit that drives our local economy and that of Greater New York. The Alliance for Coney Island is excited to partner with KCC in providing resources such as technical information on professional and continuing education programs that will help Coney Islanders advance in their careers and create businesses that will determine the improvement of the neighborhood for years and decades to come,” said Daniel Murphy, executive director of Alliance for Coney Island.
