Christopher, Laborers Pre-Apprenticeship Program:
Christopher graduated from JobTrain’s Laborers Pre-Apprenticeship Program in June 2013. He grew up in South San Francisco and became involved in gang life at an early age. He was referred to JobTrain by his older brother, himself a graduate of JobTrain’s Project Build construction program. He encouraged him to take classes in order to change his life for the better.
When he first arrived at JobTrain he didn’t have a driver’s license which is needed to join the union. He was determined to earn his license and do whatever was required of him to be successful. Upon graduation Christopher joined Labor Union Local 261. He is working at construction sites here in the Bay Area.
