Loyalist, Base31 partner on pilot project to support Bay of Quinte region


Loyalist College and Base31 have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to pursue a pilot program that will provide the Bay of Quinte region with summer jobs and education. The program will create 30 new summer jobs in the region that offer competitive wages, affordable housing in the college’s Belleville campus residences, and educational opportunities. The two partners will also co-develop micro-credentials in the culinary, hospitality, and tourism industries, and allow employees to take them at no cost. “Loyalist College is proud to partner with the innovative minds at Base31 to help remove barriers to entering the workforce in Prince Edward County,” said Loyalist Senior Vice President, External Relations and Business Development Jeremy Laurin. “We look forward to watching this future-focused initiative grow and expand to include more businesses in the surrounding region.”
