Details: Capital District Educational Opportunity Center celebrates a “return to its riverside roots” during a “pre-construction sneak peek” community event on Friday, April 12, 2013 from 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. to share plans for its new facility. The EOC will relocate to 431 River Street (the Hedley Building) this winter.
The EOC opened its doors in 1966 as the Urban Center in the former Naval Reserve Center on the corner of Washington and Front Streets. In 1973 the institution was renamed the Educational Opportunity Center and in 1984 moved to its current location, known as the former Bumstead Chevrolet Building, at 145 Congress Street.
The Capital District Educational Opportunity Center, a division of Hudson Valley Community College, provides vocational training, academic preparation programs and job placement services to the Capital District and a seven-county area of New York. Through education, intensive casework and comprehensive employment services, eligible New York residents who are 16 years old and older are offered specific skills to gain employment, to succeed on the job, and to encourage ongoing personal and professional development.
