Shaquille O’Neal Launches New Jobs Program In Newark

Shaquille O’Neal is making a difference in his hometown of Newark, New Jersey by launching a new program to train residents of the city and provide them with jobs in the field of construction.

Via the Associated Press:

O’Neal joined with Newark Mayor Ras Baraka on Tuesday to unveil Project Impact Newark. The goal is to prepare residents for union entrance exams and help secure apprenticeship positions with plumbing, carpentry and laborer unions.

The program will connect eligible residents for training and jobs to help build a 169-unit luxury high-rise apartment tower that is being constructed by Boraie Development in a partnership with O’Neal.

The former NBA star and TV analyst says he will move into the top floor of the building after it’s completed.

Kudos to Shaq!
