COMPTON (MNS) — Compton Youthbuild is hosting a virtual Completion Ceremony for its first three construction cohorts via the Zoom video communications platform on May 6, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. The community is invited to join in celebrating the success of Youthbuild’s cohort members using the link: ZOOM.
The construction program at Compton Youthbuild offers basic construction skills education coupled with hands-on experience. Students complete a pre-apprenticeship training program and earn industry recognized certifications. The 20 students participating in the ceremony all completed six months of active training by April 30.
Guest speakers include Ben Garcia, Apprenticeship Readiness coordinator, Apprenticeship Readiness Fund, Los Angeles /Orange Counties, Building & Construction, Trades Council AFL-CIO; and Jonathan Ware, Construction Trainer, Compton Youthbuild.
After the ceremony, Compton Youthbuild will continue to work with Cohort students for 12 months to provide additional support as they move towards their goals.
Since its inception, EntreNous Youth Empowerment Services (ENYES) and its’ program, Compton Youthbuild, have worked to provide disconnected youth ages 16-24 with a support system where they can learn key leadership development skills, engage in high-demand occupational training, and earn an accredited high school diploma in a small and highly- focused learning environment.
The U.S. Department of Labor validated the work of EntreNous Youth Empowerment Services by awarding the agency a $1.1 million grant to support academic and occupational skills training for nearly 70 youth. Of the $85 million awarded across the country, Compton Youthbuild was one of only six programs in California to receive the grant.
