Info Session #2 – Pathways to Apprenticeship
October 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Pathways to Apprenticeship (P2A) is a five-week, full-time pre-apprenticeship program for Upper Manhattan that certifies participants with the key skills and required safety trainings needed to qualify for an apprenticeship opportunity with local construction unions, setting them on a career path toward stable jobs with good benefits.
P2A is currently recruiting for the next Direct Entry Building Trades Pre-Apprenticeship class, which can lead to a Building Trades Apprenticeship where you learn a trade while working. There are multiple sessions held in various locations (including WHDC’s own West Harlem Skills Training Center) to provide more information about the program.
This P2A class will have a priority for residents of West Harlem.
