Prop 39: Pre-Apprentice Readiness Program Update

On August 15th, 2018, SFCC staff attended the Prop 39/Pipeline Community of Practice meeting in Richmond, Ca to discuss our MC3 Curriculum and address what works, how to make it work and identify what can be improved! In attendance were instructors, program directors and Prop 39 graduates who successfully completed the program and gained entry into a union. Our very own SFCC Director of Community and Career Development presented on our MC3 Financial Literacy, covering topics such as Budgeting 101, Spending Habits and establishing S.M.A.R.T. goals which stands for: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely. After reviewing the curriculum, we toured the RichmondBuild facility and learned about their 12 week Construction Management course offered to Prop 39 apprentices and community members interested in joining a building trade. SFCC is interested in add a 'blue print reading' portion to our existing MCS Curriculum and will be in communication with the Prop 39 community to see how we can add that component in the future!  Take a look at a few of the photos we were able to capture on site! Thank you to Richmond Build and the Prop 39 community for all the work you do to help young adults achieve their dreams, we are grateful to be a part of this incredible work!
