Media – Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc. (CAADC) is seeking local employment partners for its youth Building Trades Training Program.   The Building Trades Training Program provides instruction in the construction and maintenance fields and includes paid on-the-job training.

The program is designed to help out-of-school economically disadvantaged youth to gain the skills for a rewarding career and includes obtaining industry recognized certifications.

An important component of the project is providing youth with a paid work experience opportunity, funded by the project.  However, CAADC is still seeking employers from Delaware County in the building trades and maintenance fields to partner with for this project.  Benefits to the employers include:

  • Having an employee for 6 months paid for by the project
  • Chance to help and mentor an economically disadvantaged youth looking to start a career
  • Opportunity to secure a great future permanent employee

Participants will work approximately 20 hours per week for six months.  The opportunities start in January so please contact CAADC by mid-December or earlier.  If you are interested in partnering with CAADC please contact Eileen McCoy at (610) 874-8451.
