Foundational Program: Brick & Block Masonry and General Laboring
One Goal: $0 to Livable Wage in less than 90 days
Over ten weeks, students of all backgrounds and work experience are introduced to a realistic work environment at our Homewood campus that simulates 10-20 common sets of working conditions in the building trades. Masonry instructors, counselors, and job placement specialists share one common goal: encourage students to rebuild their lives at the same time they rebuild the city. The program celebrates its hundreds of graduates who have completed the program to become apprentices, team members, and leaders all over Southwestern PA and beyond.
