Pre-Apprentice Construction Program
The "We Build" Program provides local residents with an opportunity to enroll in a comprehensive pre-apprenticeship construction program offered at Los Angeles Unified School District's Adult and Career Education Occupational/Skill Centers.
The extensive training curriculum covers construction fundamentals, safety procedures and specialty trades (i.e. Electrical, Framing, Painting, and HVAC).
Upon completion of the training, We Build graduates are prepared to apply for a union apprenticeship towards the hiring for a job on a LAUSD construction project.
