There is a program in Marin that we think is really cool and it’s helping a lot of people that could really use it!
It’s a 10 week hands-on program that teaches students and people that are maybe headed down the wrong path in life things like construction skills, first aid, hazardous waste training and how to work with concrete.
This was developed by the Marin City Community Development Corp. and the Marin County Probation Department…it’s called the Marin City Construction Trades Program and they’ve been doing this for five years and helping people land some pretty great jobs!
They also do mock interviews to practice for the real deal and more than 80% of participants who graduated have gone on to find construction jobs.
