It is a partnership borne out of a need to support those looking for a second chance. Scott Budnick brought the Anti-Recidivism Boot Camp to LATTC, because we could provide top-notch training in the construction trades. We along with the CRCD Work Source Center, the LA County Federation of Labor and the LA/OC Building Trades put together this program for the formerly incarcerated where they attend boot camp and classes, receive training and then move into the ranks of union workers. Today these young men graduated from their boot camp and are headed to work. LA County supervisor Hilda Solis led an inspiring ceremony, talking about the success that is taking place here at Trade Tech. Rusty Hicks from the County Fed also congratulated the graduates along with Chris Hanna from the Building Trades.
