The Habitat for Humanity Construction in Training pre-apprenticeship program is a 16-week, fast track, on the job training program. The program is uniquely designed as an immersive and intensive curriculum that specializes in basic core construction fundamentals, leadership and soft skills development for participants ages 18 and over that are disenfranchised, underserved, underemployed and at-risk of being left out of the economy.
The specialized training curriculum integrates technical, behavior and mindset skills where on the job failure is most likely to occur. Most of the job technical training curriculum emphasizes on practical skills. Assessment is done on a regular basis throughout the program focusing on attendance, literacy, and construction math gains for each participant through an individual development plan.
Keeping with Habitat’s vision, mission and values, our focused CIT candidates will work together with sponsors to build a new affordable home for their community and have other hands on opportunities through our Aging in Place, Neighborhood Revitalization, and Emergency Service departments. This OJT will strengthen the CIT trainees job placement transition opportunities with all state and national construction apprenticeship programs.
