UPPER MARLBORO, MD – This afternoon, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) visited Prince George’s Community College and toured TeamBuilders Academy, a workforce development program within the College. During his visit, he discussed how the updated Make It In America agenda, which Congressman Hoyer unveiled in July and focuses on education, entrepreneurship, and infrastructure, seeks to promote pathways to career opportunities and make training and education more accessible and affordable for students.
“I thoroughly enjoyed visiting TeamBuilders Academy and meeting with students and instructors today,” said Congressman Hoyer. “This unique program matches students with local employers and ensures students have the technical and job readiness skills they need to get ahead and succeed in their careers. TeamBuilders Academy is an excellent example of a program that helps prepare students for in-demand jobs. I join in congratulating Prince George’s Community College on this impressive program.”
