CMS staff participated in the PGCC TeamBuilders Academy Fall 2017 Career Showcase! So exciting to see the students give their elevator speech and discuss their qualifications and goals. The TeamBuilders Academy (TBA) is a Prince George’s Community College Workforce Development Program, offering cohort-based accelerated adult career training. TBA’s mission is to provide job readiness-related soft skills training combined with occupational trade-related technical skills training. After instruction is provided to eligible Prince George’s County residents they are matched with local employers.
The creation of this program was inspired by former Councilmember Tony Knotts who recognized a need for specialized training programs in his community. The program started in April 2009 with construction being the primary area of interest. Since then, the TeamBuilders Academy has added “tracks” of occupational training within a variety of industry clusters that align with the Prince George’s Community College Workforce Development Institutes such as, computers and information technology, health and human services, hospitality and tourism, transportation and distribution, and public safety and security.
