GBCA member contractors were invited by Everybody Builds to learn more about the Carpenters’ Apprentice Ready Program on Saturday, March 4, 2023. Attendees learned more about the program, met with past program participants, and took a tour of the Eastern Atlantic States Carpenters Technical College (previously the Carpenters Joint Apprentice Training Center of Philadelphia & Vicinity) and see the current cohort of CARP participants in action.
Everybody Builds, of which GBCA is a member, connects developers and owners, contractors, and construction building trades in an effort to diversity Philadelphia’s construction industry. Pre-apprentice programs such as CARP work to introduce more individuals to the construction industry.
Many thanks to the following individuals for being a part of this visit:
- Andreina Perez Hein, Executive Director, Everybody Builds
- Robert Landy, Director of Training, Eastern Atlantic States Carpenters Technical College
- Taquan Woodard, PDM Constructors, Inc. (past CARP participant)
