                                                                  Welcome to Adult and Continuing Education at LaGuardia Community College.

                                                                  college; train for a promising career in technology, healthcare or another high demand field; and find meaningful and
                                                                  sustainable employment.

                                         LaGuardia students challenge expectations, studying to make a better life for themselves and their families. They push boundaries—working
                                         around job schedules and family responsibilities, adapting to a new language and environment—to reach their educational and professional
                                         goals. And they dare to do more than what is expected of them.

                                         LaGuardia nurtures that drive, that spirit, that commitment by providing high quality education and job training that meet all your needs.

                                         Assistant Director, Workforce Partnerships & Employment Services

                                         Sharing career lessons
                                         Jason Weinstein hit his professional stride when he started working as a recruiter in the healthcare industry.
                                         After several promotions and a change of employers, his career path led to his current role at LaGuardia as
                                         Assistant Director of Workforce Partnerships & Employment Services in The Learning & Innovation Center’s
                                         (LIC2) Career Development Center. In this capacity, Jason manages the team that provides job readiness
                                         services and employment assistance to non-credit students. He also works as part of a larger team that
                                         uses labor market information to develop industry/employer partnerships for LIC2 training programs and
                                         the broader college.

                                         “The most rewarding thing about this work is being able to play a part in our students’ professional and
                                         personal growth as well as their career advancement,” says Jason. He also notes that working with
                                         employers helps to bridge the gap between student and industry needs.

                                         Currently working towards a Master Degree in Higher Education Administration, Jason explains that he
                                         uses his own experiences in his career journey to help the students he advises. “I learned how important
                                         networking, professionalism and communication is. I enjoy sharing these lessons with our students,” he
                                         says, adding that his team helps set them on a career pathway that allows them to provide for themselves
                                         and their families.
