About Building Futures
Building Futures is both a program that helps prepare low income men and women in urban areas for rewarding careers in the commercial construction and an initiative that partners to expand entry-level training opportunities in the trades through proven apprenticeship programs.
Their program consists of a multi-week, comprehensive evaluation and preparation process to help participants determine their interest and readiness for entering a construction apprenticeship program. Building Futures does not provide advanced technical training in specific construction trades skills. Rather, our training component reflects the basic skills needed in all construction trades. Their program also provides career exploration, coursework and social service support.
