Construction Apprenticeship Program

Q: Who is eligible for the program?

A: Anyone who is or was a client with Good Seed. We also accept referrals from service providers, community organizations and churches for young men and women who may be homeless or at risk of homelessness. If you have the desire and you want to learn and earn, we encourage you to apply.

Q: How long is the program?

A: TAY and others will spend up to a year learning and gaining on the job experience. We help each person to identify their skills and strengths and where they can contribute the most and earn the most money.

Q: Will I make money?

A: Yes. After your initial application process, screening and orientation, each CAP participant can begin earning wages as they begin gaining on the job experience in all aspects of the construction trade starting with location prep and shut down.

Q: Do I have to go to school?

A: Each CAP component requires a minimum number of hours of instruction. Those who are motivated to earn higher wages and work with a construction firm will be encouraged to take relevant classes at nearby Los Angeles Trade Tech College. We hope to secure a partnership with LATTC by Fall 2015.

Using the latest in blueprint technology, we construct precise documents that allow clients to visualize their projects in 3D with real time adjustments and detail. With a generous donation from Chief Architect, we are able to provide our students with the latest in blueprint design tools.

Q: Will I make money?

A: Yes. Once you have completed the necessary training and apprenticeship hours, you will be eligible to assist our licensed contractors with real jobs for real clients. Eventually, those who are highly skilled can earn their license and begin contracting with clients as extra or their primary income.
