Construction Pre-Apprenticeship Info Session



Interested in a Career in Construction or Building Trades?

We are hosting an information session to recruit Yonkers Residents for a Building Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program offered by Pathways to Apprenticeship, sponsored by the Yonkers IDA, and in partnership with the Westchester Building & Construction Trades Council.

Pre-apprenticeship programs provide a direct pathway for people from low-income communities -- including, but not limited to, formerly incarcerated individuals, people on public assistance, and residents of public housing -- to enter union apprentice programs, work on union construction projects in their own communities and, more importantly, secure lifelong middle-class careers in the unionized construction industry.

Graduates will get interviews with Building and Construction Trade Unions. This is the first step to not just landing a job, but to starting a career in the unionized construction field.

Information session will be held on Tuesday, July 17th at 6pm @ThePowerLab
