The 2023 graduates of our Latino Construction Program raise their hard hats

Latino Construction Program

The Latino Construction Program (LCP) has helped many Spanish-speaking individuals from the Cleveland area to overcome language barriers and earn more money with better jobs in construction trades. Our free, bilingual 6-week training program teaches students the basics of construction so they can earn an OSHA certification for free and get a job with a union or private construction company after graduation. Classes are held in the evenings with dinner included.

History of the Latino Construction Program

Our first LCP cohort graduation was on July 13th, 2018 with 12 graduates. We had our 14th cohort graduation on October 7th, 2022. Over the course of the program, over 500 individuals showed interest and were interviewed; over 130 participants were successfully placed in the different trades. Each class can teach up to 25 students. Program completion is roughly 78% which has increased from its beginning at 68% in 2018.
