Work Boots Needed
Help our Apprenticeship Preparation Program participants get the first-hand construction experience they need by donating gently used work boots!
The APP prepares formerly incarcerated and gang-involved community members to enter union construction careers through a classroom course, case management services, five union training site visits, and 40 hours of hands-on volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. Due to safety regulations, participants are required to wear boots when they visit construction sites and volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.
The site visits and hands-on training give students exposure to the various trades and make developing a career in construction feel attainable. Working with Habitat for Humanity also provides students with the satisfaction of giving back to their communities, while also gaining experience on a real construction project.
All 30 participants need sturdy work boots. If you have a pair or would like to make a monetary donation to help someone start a career:
