Latino Construction Program

The Latino Construction Program (LCP) from the Spanish American Committee has helped many Spanish-speaking individuals from the Cleveland area overcome language barriers and earn more money with better jobs in construction trades. The LCP offers Hispanic and Latino individuals better opportunities in workforce development, training, and job placement. Previously, many Spanish-speaking professionals were not given many options for jobs at higher-paying development and construction companies due to language and/or cultural barriers. Not only are those we serve able to make a more livable wage, but they are in professional fields with companies that offer security and potential to further succeed and grow within their trade.
