Youth Workforce Development
Job Training at Rebuilding Together New Orleans
We’re excited to announce the launch of an exciting new workforce development initiative, the Nacy and Josephine Fradella Job Training Program. The purpose, provide local youth with training and exposure to the construction industry. This program is a complement to our core belief that everyone has a right to live in a safe and healthy home.
Job training creates career pathways for participants in a high wage industry while also increasing our capacity to serve low-income families who need critical home repairs. The program is designed to provide initial apprenticeship training in a ten week, three hundred hour summer program. Following that curriculum interested individuals can enroll in longer six or eleven month opportunities. Ultimately the goal at all levels is to provide participants with meaningful training opportunities that better our community and increase employability.
