HIRE360 job center to serve the community and help diversify the construction industry

Founded in 2019 with support from Related Midwest, nonprofit HIRE360 is pursuing a mission to make the construction trades more diverse and to create new opportunities for underrepresented Chicago residents and small businesses. With construction already underway, HIRE360's new Training and Business Development Center is poised to open in 2023 and will serve the community by offering residents job training, mentorship, business investments and more. The 40,000-square-foot campus will feature commercial training kitchens, retail space, conference and meeting rooms and a playroom/parent center, creating a vibrant and dynamic environment for the community's benefit. HIRE360's campus will focus on workforce development, business development, supply chain engagement and youth education, which will help prepare the workforce's next generation and will open more doors for existing Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) within the construction trades.
