Rigorous training and pre-apprenticeship course that, upon completion, allows women to enter high wage, high skill, non-traditional jobs, primarily in the trades, construction and petrochemical technology fields. LAGC funds will partially underwrite the cost of the job developer, who works with each cohort to train and prep the women, as well as to create relationships in the job sector, primarily with contractors, unions and “hazmat” programs.  The moneys will also help underwrite costs for supplies,  tools, clothes, and the initial union fee if the woman cannot afford it.
