Hire Local Campaign

The Hire Local program connects Detroit Shoreway residents to local jobs in the neighborhood. The campaign is to help residents share in the economic growth of the neighborhood, increase their self and family sufficiency, eliminate transportation as a barrier to employee retention and create a pipeline of diverse and qualified residents to fill local vacancies. 

On our website, we have a jobs board of local businesses who are hiring. If you are looking for work experience in customer service, banking, hospitality or manufacturing. You can contact El Barrio Workforce Development Center at 216-325-WORK to participate in their FREE 4 week training. Training is Monday - Friday, from 9am – 4pm. El Barrio’s Gordon Square campus is located at 5209 Detroit Avenue.
