CAIT seeks to support young people from underserved communities to select from among the many viable transportation career options, fill system gaps in under-recognized areas of workforce need, and help our youth overcome the identified barriers which have prevented easy pathways to success in the past.

This pilot project will identify and catalog highly localized career opportunities within transportation and the City of Camden NJ. The primary goal is to gather and document this information to begin creating future entry points into the transportation workforce for youth in Camden.

The intended outcome of the project is to develop a map-based tool to display/organize data on potential employers/entry points and their specific locations within the local Camden region.
