About The Long Island Business, Labor, & Employment Council
The Long Island Business, Labor, & Employment Council is a United Way of Long Island initiative dedicated to engaging employers and training providers in order to develop systems, employment competencies and career building opportunities for Veterans and youth on Long Island. The council is comprised of local companies and organizations which have committed to providing internships, on-the-job training and job shadowing opportunities which lead to full time employment for Long Islanders.
