Getting Young People Back To Work

As the country’s unemployment rate continues to rise—Hope Builders is proud to share that we continue to link young adults to jobs. We are hopeful these young adults will do well in their new positions, because more than 70% of the trainees that we placed into employment this year remain employed! Thanks to your support, Hope Builders continues to be a solution for getting Orange County’s young people back to work.

Two more essential workers placed with Mammoth Electric
Last month a number of our construction trainees participated in virtual interviews for paid training opportunities with Mammoth Electric. Gaby and Mauricio, both pictured below with classmates, were selected to being on the job training. Hope Builders Construction Company will remain the employer of record and provide ongoing coaching and support to ensure retention. If Gaby and Mauricio continue to demonstrate the same readiness and motivation they had during training, at the conclusion of the internship, they will be eligible for full-time employment with Mammoth Electric.

                     

“I know I can show that Hope Builders helped me gain the skills I need to be successful.”
Gaby was seeking a career she could be passionate about. After volunteering with Habitat for Humanity she felt she found her calling. “I wanted to learn more about the various trades, so I enrolled in Hope Builders,” Gaby recalls. “I’m really excited to work for a female-owned company. I know I can show that Hope Builders helped me gain the skills I need to be successful.”

“I’m so glad that I have the opportunity to pursue my dream of working in the field.”
Mauricio dreamed of becoming a civil engineer. He was introduced to construction as a child since his dad does kitchen and bathroom remodels. He excelled in high school but lacked the funds to continue his education at a community college. “My cousin introduced me to Hope Builders. I’m so glad that I have the opportunity to pursue my dream of working in the field,” Mauricio shared. “I can’t wait to continue my education at ABC and become an electrician.”

Through your generosity, we remain committed to providing young adults with the mentorship, job skills and life skills training needed to move from poverty to prosperity.
