County Residents Complete Construction Training through TeamBuilders Academy

The following information was sent to us by Joe Clark from The Prince George's County Community College:

A cohort of 24 students have completed three months of hands-on-training in the construction trade through Prince George’s Community College’s TeamBuilders Academy. The group, including 12 women, is prepared to enter career fields such as building maintenance engineering, residential weatherization and property preservation. The accelerated adult career training program matches eligible unemployed Prince George’s County residents with local employers by providing job readiness and occupational trades-related technical skills training. 

TeamBuilders Academy began in April 2009 and was inspired by former Prince George’s County Council member Tony Knotts who recognized the need for a specialized job training program to support his community. TeamBuilders Academy is now open to all eligible adult residents of Prince George’s County who are long-term unemployed and eager to enter the workforce but need training, guidance and assistance to establish a solid career path. 

Program completers will be recognized in a public ceremony, December 12, 5 p.m., in Largo Student Center, Community Room B.
