Shaquille O’Neal has lent his huge hands to the launch of a new jobs program in his Newark, NJ hometown with hopes of increasing access to unions and construction jobs in the city.

O’Neal teamed with Newark Mayor Ras Baraka on Tuesday to unveil Project Impact Newark. The goal is to prepare residents for union entrance exams and help secure apprenticeship positions with plumbing, carpentry and laborer unions.

The program will connect eligible residents for training and jobs to help build a 169-unit luxury high-rise apartment tower that is being constructed by Boraie Development in a partnership with O’Neal.

The NBA vet and TV analyst says he will move into the top floor of the building once it’s completed.
