Adult Program

Women In Non Traditional Employment Roles

Ten weeks of hands on training and placement in high skill careers.

Our program is designed to replicate real work experience. Members sharpen their math and reading skills. Participants get an understanding of Blue Print reading, hand tools and heavy machinery. Our ten week Multi-Craft Core Curriculum from the National Trades Council will introduce Union options, Non Traditional Careers, and the necessary skill-sets required to maintain employment. We begin the program with three day Boot Camps. This is an opportunity to test endurance, mental toughness and technique.
