The Turner Paschen Aviation Partners holds in high regard its connection to local communities and their access to opportunities. To that end, the team has entered into a partnership with the JLM Abundant Life Center on Chicago’s West Side. The partnership was designed to create a direct and meaningful connection with the local workforce and businesses by establishing a resource center that opened to the public on Monday, September 27.
Working with many of the city’s designated workforce and contractor assist agencies, the team will offer workshops and programs to educate and inform the community about upcoming O’Hare-related construction activities.
Some of the key benefits and features include:
- delivery of real-time information for upcoming opportunities
- alignment with the community by being conveniently located in a business and community hub designed to foster connectivity among organizations and city of Chicago residents
- a facility that offers office space in addition to larger meeting facilities for large outreach activities
“The Turner Paschen Aviation Partners team is excited to have a new home inside the JLM Center. This Resource Center will serve as our continued commitment to and partnership with the community at large to ensure interested individuals, organizations, and companies are informed of the great work happening at O’Hare,” said Pam Brown, Director of Community and Citizenship for Turner Paschen Aviation Partners. “Our staff will be on hand to answer questions about career and contracting opportunities at O’Hare. Working with community-based organizations, labor organizations, and training programs, we intend to host workshops to equip individuals with the skills needed to be successful in apprenticeship programs as well as other construction-related careers. We will also host workshops for companies interested in bidding work at O’Hare. At the end of the day, we want the community to know we are here to be partners in their success.”
The resource center is located within the JLM Abundant Life Center at 2622 W Jackson Blvd. in Chicago. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For further information visit the JLM Resource Center Page of the Turner Paschen Aviation Partners website.
