Flintridge Center in Pasadena and the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council AFL-CIO are preparing community members for careers in the construction trades.
Flintridge Center offers the Apprenticeship Preparation Program (APP) three times each year at its headquarters at 236 West Mountain Street. The APP consists of 240 hours over 12 weeks and provides a 110-hour classroom component based on the Building Trade Council’s Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3), which introduces participants to all of the construction trades. The program also includes life skills, career planning, hands-on training, one-on-one coaching, and job development assistance. Providing opportunities to previously incarcerated community members results in transformed lives and a stronger, safer community.
