From the District of Columbia Housing Authority's press release:

Thirty five residents who participated in the District of Columbia Housing Authority’s Modified Apprenticeship Training Program (ATP) today celebrated their graduation, and more importantly, new job opportunities.

“I started the Apprenticeship Training Program in 2018 as one approach to connect our customers to opportunity and strengthen their ability to compete in the open job market in the trades and labor industries. The program has now provided job training for nearly 100 District residents and allowed them the chance to create a path toward sustained gainful employment and self-sufficiency,” said DCHA Executive Director Tyrone Garrett.

The apprentices, the majority of whom are DCHA customers, received training for light maintenance, landscaping, painting, carpentry, electrical, and other projects that will improve the curb appeal of DCHA communities. After graduation, trainees will continue receiving any necessary support from the DCHA Office of Resident Services and Workforce Development.
