Masonry Apprenticeship Program, learning to lay bricks
The West Adams WorkSource Center, run by EWDD partner Asian American Drug Abuse Program (AADAP), recently provided the $300 initiation fee to provide tools, registration fees and two months of union dues for a female cement mason worker selected for the HireLAX Apprenticeship Program, designed to help participants work toward a career in construction.

Granite Construction sponsored the candidate into the Cement Masons Apprenticeship Program and she has been assigned to a worksite at LAX.

The participant will be part of Cement Masons, Local 600.

EWDD’s WorkSource Centers are playing an active role in finding qualified candidates from South Los Angeles for the program, part of an ongoing effort to help local residents get hired for construction projects throughout the region.
