Savannah is stepping up the fight on poverty in the Coastal Empire. Today, Step Up Savannah's latest poverty reduction initiative began. This was the first orientation in the new program, called the Construction Apprentice Program. It focuses on helping people learn construction skills from professionals.
Graduates of the program would then be guaranteed interviews with the Homebuilders Association.
"It will provide training, a total of nine months in all, classroom and on the job training, for those who are interested and want to pursue a career in the field of construction," said Carole Fire of Project Savannah.
They're holding another orientation session tomorrow night at 5:30pm at St. Mary's Community Center on 36th Street.
