BENEFITING: FLINTRIDGE CENTER
The summer session of the Apprenticeship Preparation Program(APP) is under way and Flintridge Center needs your help to raise $3,000 for tools, textbooks, and safety equipment for 40 students this summer. We need your support!
APP's summer session is a tuition-free 12-week, 240-hour course that provides the hands-on experience, knowledge and skills to hard-to-employ young people in our community in order to help them successfully apply and be accepted into positions in the construction field.
Here is how your dollars can help right now:
- $20 will purchase a screw driver set for the APP classroom.
- $35 will purchase a hard hat, safety glasses, ruler, calculator and note pad for one APP student.
- $50 buys tool belts for three APP students.
- $70 will purchase a construction education text book.
- $100 will pay for five hammers for students to use in class projects.
- $300 will provide transportation for 35 summer session students to visit a construction site or union training center.
The Apprenticeship Preparation Program needs your support! Stable employment is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and violence. Help Flintridge Center prepare our young people in high-need, high-risk circumstances for careers in the construction trades. Let’s help get our community back to work!
