RichmondBUILD seeks applicants for January cohort

Local job seekers are encouraged to sign up for the city of Richmond’s award-winning program, RichmondBUILD, which prepares local residents for high-paying careers in the construction and renewable energy industries.

Right now, residents of Richmond and San Pablo can apply to join the January cohort for the free 12-week program.

The program was created in 2007 as a way to battle poverty and violence with career opportunity. And it works: Last year, one of RichmondBUILD’s graduations had to be canceled as all 21 students in that cohort received job offers and started working before their scheduled ceremony.

Students are trained with industry-wide certificates in construction, multi craft curriculum, hazardous materials (HAZWOPER 40), OSHA 10, confined spaces and first aid/CPR.
