Our Building Trades Trailer at IUEC Local 8 headquarters (Elevator Constructors) in San Francisco. Thank you for your generous donation that is helping us to complete the outfitting of the trailer.
We join a strategy meeting at the Marin Builders Association to introduce ourselves and offer our participation in upcoming training classes planned for seniors at Marin high schools.
We did it! Unveiled our new Building Trades Trailer at this year’s Annual Dinner, attended by 170 people no less.
Foundation Twenty One is currently in discussion with counselors at NOVA, Marin Oaks, and San Marin high schools to schedule on-campus visits with the trailer…exhibiting tools of the various building trades on one side, and showing information on apprenticeship programs and building systems/methods on the other. If you are tradesman looking to volunteer your time and expertise, please contact us.
