Apprenticeship Preparation Program

“I now have the competent skills to not only survive but thrive.”

After her release from prison, Angela Fuller just wanted to occupy her time. She didn’t want to fall back to her old habits. That’s when she came across the Apprenticeship Preparation Program and decided to give it a try. She says APP was well-suited for her because construction gave her “the opportunity to be creative on a larger scale.” Her favorite things about the program were the sense of community, diversity of her class, knowledgeable instructors, and especially the support and motivation Flintridge provided to help her accomplish her goal of graduating. Since graduating, Angela has explored the floor covering union Local 1247, found a solid paying job, and says she has found new avenues in life because of the program. When she’s not on the job, Angela enjoys watching wrestling matches and catching up on politics.
