Youth Career Preparedness

The Bureau of Asset Management is committed to mentoring young professionals in the skilled trades and providing opportunities for job experience. 

Working with Walsh Construction during the Harrison Square project, four pre-apprenticeship program members from the surrounding community learned first-hand, valuable skills used by the traders such as carpentry, painint and tile setting. By participating in the program, they earned exposure to the field of construction and mentoring by a professional, built communication and work-readiness skills, met and networked with some of the largest subcontractors in the area, and were subsequently offered positions and placed in jobs within their specific expertise.
