Gang Alternative Inc.'s Project RENEW at CBT College: Plumbing and Electrical Systems
"This is a hands-on training in our labs, with real scenarios and all the necessary theory for a successful completion", said Luis Llerena, Business Development Director who oversees the strategic partnership with Gang Alternative. "Project RENEW was designed to help young adults to obtain education so that they can gain and retain jobs aligned with selected career pathways. We're proud to be part of these efforts", he added.
CBT College and GA have collaborated before with result-oriented courses; first from a group of 20 students who were trained in Microsoft Office Suite, and then with a group of six who became certified as Phlebotomists.
RENEW is a free program designed to help young adults gain greater self-sufficiency by ultimately providing placement in jobs that pay a livable wage. The Project RENEW model is founded on evidence-based curricula, approaches and programs and includes ongoing legal support, navigational case management, GED or high school completion, work readiness, soft skills development, and mentorship.
