The Salvation Army of Sacramento is excited to share with you our new Construction Training Program. The Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. of Northern California has partnered with us to offer a seven-day, hands-on training program that provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the construction trades as a career path. Upon completion, students receive both OSHA 10 certification and Construction Training Card (such as Electrician in Training), and are ready to work. Our goal is to teach 10 students per quarter, or 40 students per year, with electrical work, carpentry, painting and plumbing.
The participants of the class are individuals who are currently or have been recently involved in a local Salvation Army program. These could be graduates of the Adult Rehabilitation Center, participants of the E. Claire Raley Transitional Living Center, graduates of the Adult Education GED Program or a client who has been served through The Salvation Army-Sacramento County’s Family Services.
By the time the one-week course has concluded, the graduates receive boots, tools and a tool belt. Program participants can be courted for possible employment during job fairs coordinated by ABC NorCal and hosted at our Family Service warehouse.
It is only through your support that we can continue providing meaningful programs that help lift people up of out the cycle of addiction and homelessness.
