2010 Chicago Heartland Conference: How the “Green Construction Corps” program is Creating Career Development Opportunities.
Posted by Ray Garcia - On March 04, 2010 (EST)
Green Construction Corps
offers participating youth two-weeks of professional construction training
(class/shop training) at the Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship and Training
Center followed by a minimum of six weeks of on-the-job (OJT) training and
employment with Habitat for Humanity, St. Louis; Missouri's largest Green Builder.
In addition, participants are assessed using the WorkKeys assessments leading
to a MoCRC certification, receive OSHA certified job safety training, exposure
to green building practices both in the shop and on-the-job, and, based on
successful completion of the program, up to three (3) college credits from
Mineral Area College which they may apply to future post-secondary education.
there anything specific you’d like the presenters to address?
