Workforce Development

Mission

Increase interest in the construction industry, and provide West Baltimore City’s residents with assistance, resources, opportunities, and access to family supporting careers, as well as develop healthier and thriving neighborhoods.

Model

11-17 Years

We will house a woodshop inside of the center which will be used to introduce middle school students to careers in the construction industry through vocational workshops. The center will also be used to teach math classes and how to apply those concepts into the real-world by using the woodshop.

18-24 Years

We will provide community-based resources, and opportunities to address three major barriers of skills training, transportation, and access which prevents residents from obtaining family supporting waged employment.
