SSBx staff headed to Gracie Mansion on July 10th to receive the 2012 NYC Neighborhood Achievement Award for BEST Academy. SSBx won the Workforce Innovation award, which honors “an organization or business that has pioneered a creative and effective approach to workforce development that enhances the community and is a model for others.”
We were one of 17 groups honored at the outdoor event. Nonprofit and business leaders from all across the city were present as Deputy Mayor Robert K. Steel and Commissioner of Small Business Services Robert W. Walsh presented the 2012 awards to recipients from all five boroughs.
