Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, in-person services had been stopped and virtual services began in March 2020 by Greater Raritan One-Stop system partners. Service procedures are now evolving to reflect the reopening of New Jersey.
The Greater Raritan One-Stop Career Training Service Center at 27 Warren St. in Somerville is open to in-person service beginning June 15. Appointments are encouraged and customers who walk in will be accommodated as staffing levels permit. Return dates for in-person service at the Training Center at 6 Gauntt Place in Flemington and the Greater-Raritan One-Stop / Employment Services Center at 75 Veterans Memorial Drive have not been set.
As they have been since the onset of the pandemic, staff will continue to assist customers over the phone, via email and through virtual appointments, and an orientation session for new customers is conducted on Fridays. Virtual career-webinars presented by the Training Center and weekly webinars on SkillUp Greater Raritan (a program of the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board) will continue for the immediate future. To schedule an appointment or for more information, call 908-541-5780 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
In addition, all GRWDB Board and Committee meetings are being conducted virtually.
Look on the calendar for more information on all programs and meetings.
