  $1.2 Million Grant for YouthBUILD
April 26, 2022

I just got a phone call from Labor Secretary Marty Walsh informing me that the City of Richmond has been awarded a $1,199,000 grant to support the development of apprenticeship and other career pathway models that prepare underserved young adults (16-24 years) who are not currently in school for jobs in construction and other in-demand industries, including green building. This model will provide valuable training for occupational skills while promoting educational opportunities - splitting time between workplace training and the classroom to obtain their high school diploma or equivalency degree.

Secretary Walsh was in Richmond in August of 2021 to visit RichmondBUILD.
