About Us

Building Skills NY (BSNY) provides employment and placement opportunities for low­ income New Yorkers in the affordable housing construction and management industry. Leaders from the affordable housing industry created BSNY to help meet the needs of underemployed and unemployed residents and increase their access to economic opportunities in neighborhoods where affordable housing is built. BSNY's leaders understood that along with quality housing, access to good employment opportunities for local residents is a critical aspect of community development.

With over thirty partner organizations, including some of New York City's leading affordable housing developers, construction companies, subcontractors, and educational/workforce institutions, BSNY is uniquely positioned to connect job seekers, training providers and employers. BSNY's mission works toward decreasing unemployment and increasing self-sufficiency.
