SUBJECT

Boys’ Home Trades Program

RATIONALE

Boys’ Home is interested in taking an active role in training its residents for careers in fields that may not require a college education.  Therefore, an advisory committee has been formed to discuss and to develop a “Trades Program” (possibly HVAC courses) to share across cities/counties without adding to the burdens of the school systems.  The advisory committee is comprised of members from school divisions, Boys’ Home staff, local business people and other members at large.  Through the sharing of resources of all entities, opportunities could be available for young people to learn a skill or trade to enhance future employment.
