As the pandemic continued and individuals needed opportunities more urgently than ever before, Flintridge Center staff resumed a hybridized model of the program in June with adjustments to preserve health of participants and staff.At this time, Flintridge Center’s APP was one of the only operating programs offering a Building Trades approved curriculum in Los Angeles County. For participants, this presented an unprecedented opportunity to enter in-demand careers as union hiring has continued amidst the crisis.Click on image to enlarge“You all were one of the first programs to figure this out,” Isaac Lopez from the Apprenticeship Readiness Fund of the Los Angeles and Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council shared at the graduation. “You guys pushed through it, you showed that something is possible. It’s not an exaggeration to say you all put your lives at risk to show up here.”The APP combines workforce development and skills-building with trauma-informed care to support participants facing multiple barriers. With social distancing and sanitization measures in place, the class of seven completed 10 weeks of the Multi Craft Core Curriculum (a building-trades approved pre-apprenticeship course), trauma-informed life-skills with 2nd Call, employment development, physical fitness and more.Graduate and Pasadena resident Reginald Beasley was working at the Rose Bowl until he was laid off due to the pandemic. “Since I’ve been in class, I’ve learned a lot. It’s given me a positive mind frame, and not wanting to go back to doing things I was doing that weren’t good. The best thing about it is learning how I can better myself.” After graduating the program, Beasley plans on joining the laborers union.About Flintridge CenterFlintridge Center’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty and violence through community planning, innovation and action. Flintridge Center works to interrupt cycles of violence and poverty through reintegration programs for formerly incarcerated and gang-impacted adults, and youth development programs for youth who are at risk of falling into the justice system.

The council has secured funding of €170 million from the European Investment Bank and the Council of Europe Development Bank and we are on the verge of submitting a planning application for the project to An Bord Pleanála,” Mr Conway explained.“So, after some disappointments in the past when the site was in private ownership, we are now finally about to see one of the most eagerly awaited developments in the state come to fruition.”“Before we submit the planning application, however, we want to give the public one last opportunity to make submissions. This will, in fact, be the second publication consultation on the project. The first, in February following the publication of the design brief, generated a hugely positive response and showed the public interest and support there is for the project.”“The Opera Site will be the one of the biggest project of its kind developed outside of the capital and that, in its own right, reflects the confidence and ambition there is in Limerick today. We are in a much different place and turning heads not just nationally but internationally. That’s going to happen even more now because of Opera. These are exciting times for Limerick.” BusinessNewsOpera site project is on the moveBy Staff Reporter – November 22, 2018 3025 Email Twitterlast_img read more
