The HISD Office of College & Career Readiness is collaborating with two Houston area organizations looking to provide immediate trainings, jobs, and apprenticeships to seniors this summer:
The Texas Masonry Council: a group of masonry contractors and suppliers in the state of Texas working together to promote the expanded use and the benefits of masonry. http://www.texasmasonrycouncil.org/
Houston Gulf Coast Building and Construction Trades Council: Offering Apprenticeships Today, the Houston Gulf Coast Building and Construction Trades Council Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee and Signatory Partners own the country’s leading professional construction training program, offering its students the most comprehensive and diverse education, coupled with a state of the art training facilities. One of the unique aspects of the Joint Apprenticeship Training school is that each student “earns while they learn.” Each apprentice has a job by day and attends school at night. The Houston Gulf Coast Building and Construction Trades Council believes that an important part of any effective training program is to take lessons learned in the training facility and apply them to the real world. https://www.hgcbctc.com/apprentices.html
