Civic Hall @ Union Square will open in early 2022 and will span six floors and include a collaborative community space, state-of-the-art conference and events center, and a 42,000 square foot Digital Learning Center (DLC). The DLC will include 16 classrooms to be shared among NYC’s leading technology training and job training organizations. Collectively, these organizations will help improve access to in-demand tech jobs for all New Yorkers by creating a universal entry point for tech skills training, an incubator for successful training models, and a center of excellence for the industry to build and share best practices.
The DLC space is intended to serve as a collaborative space where technology training providers prepare New Yorkers for jobs in the technology sector. This will be accomplished by providing centralized resources and connections across technology job trainers and employers, to create opportunities that develop a more competitive and inclusive workforce.
Today, Civic Hall is engaging in an extensive planning process: engaging the tech training ecosystem and piloting programs ahead of the building’s opening.
