Increase interest in the construction trades, and create a pipeline between West Baltimore City’s residents and the construction industry.
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.
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.
Participants will receive technical training by refurbishing the surrounding vacant properties, creating new affordable housing.
