Local general contracting firm Murphy Brothers Contracting has been recognized by The Guidance Center of Westchester for their contributions to the community.
The Murphy Brothers team has been working with Soulful Synergy and their FutureWorks 2020 program, an inspirational four-week program where young adults, ages 17-24 from the low-moderate income community in Mt. Vernon and New Rochelle, receive 10 construction based certifications, career services, and ultimately job placement.
The program is unique in the area and its purpose is to eliminate barriers to entry in the construction industry and provide participants an opportunity to cast a wide net when seeking career opportunities.
“Our industry needs to get younger,” says Chris Murphy, President of Murphy Brothers. “We desperately need well-prepared young men and women to energize the construction field and are delighted to have this opportunity to promote the FutureWorks 2020 program and the work of The Guidance Center of Westchester”.
Murphy Brothers has been family-owned and operated for more than 40 years by brothers Sean and Chris Murphy, who were born and raised in Mamaroneck. They focus on giving back to the local community through education, volunteering, and innovation, including building the first local green storage facility.
The team at Murphy Brothers is vitally concerned about the future workforce of the construction industry and knows they need to think younger and smarter. This partnership introduced them to a hard-working and impressive young woman whom they’ve now hired full-time.
The Center for College & Careers (CCC) is at the heart of the youth and young adult programs at The Guidance Center of Westchester (TGCW). The CCC transforms the lives of youth and young adults (ages 13-25) so they can pursue post-secondary education or start on a career track.
CCC helps participants develop skills and confidence while creating opportunities for them to have successful futures in whatever path they choose.
Murphy Brothers will be honored on October 22 at the 2020 CCC Virtual Bash for the Future.
The bash kicks off virtually at 6:30 p.m. and there is no cost to attend. The bash will have a mission auction raising funds online through a text-to-give function. There is no ticket price for the event, as it is an online Virtual event.
