Home Depot provides training
Home Depot is again working with Comprehensive Community Solutions, Inc. (YouthBuild Rockford), to complete the third phase of training for this year on March 13. This final workshop will be at 435 Waveland Ave. in Lincolnwood Estates Subdivision, and will be given for trainees enrolled in YouthBuilds construction component. The workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
Previous phases have included the YouthBuild trainees visiting the local Home Depot outlet to receive training in construction-related activities, such as building design, doors, windows, drywall installation, plumbing and flooring.
YouthBuild trainees also participated in a (Ground Hog Day) job shadow in January. This allowed potential job candidates to experience simulated working conditions at Home Depot.
