Carpenter Contractor Trust and Bisnow have partnered to share the value of union construction in Philadelphia. The most recent update looks at efforts from GBCA and the Carpenters JAC to help more Philadelphians enter the building trades through the Carpenters’ Apprentice Ready Program (CARP).

The CARP program is where the needs of the construction industry dovetail perfectly with the exposure to opportunity and the values of our communities. Developers and contractors are always searching for the most qualified, reliable, and, yes, creative craftspeople they can find. Graduates of CARP have demonstrated a willingness to overcome obstacles, a willingness to learn and to apply their fledgling skills to a satisfying career.
