  1. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has made a large financial and personnel commitment to train incarcerated men and women in the building and construction trades. We train in over twenty trades, and over half of those are building and construction.

    Our students finish with a different mindset than that which was the cause of their incarceration. They also finish with a certification that verifies that they have the knowledge and skills equivalent to that of a person who has finished the first year of an apprenticeship program.

    If you are in California, I encourage you to reach out to us to help you find personally evolved and highly qualified employees who are likely to become social leaders for cooperation and high standards. We also welcome your input on the design of our training programs so that we can produce the potential employees that you want to hire.
