Young adults in Detroit interested in a skilled trades career will get the chance to register with local unions Wednesday, December 8 at an apprenticeship career fair.

It’s at the Randolph Career and Technical Center, 17101 Hubbell Street, from 3:30 to 6 p.m.  More than a dozen local affiliates and trades associations are scheduled to be on site. 

Careers include carpentry, cement masonry, drywall finishing, electricians, iron works, millwrights, painting, pipefitting, plumbing, roofing and sheet metal.

Design Build teams hired to build and renovate Detroit Public Schools through the district’s bond program will also be on site.

“The career fair on December 8 is about keeping a commitment to voters and creating every opportunity possible to expand Detroit’s workforce,” said Carol Weaver, Program Supervisor for the Bond Program.

“The fair will be an excellent opportunity for Detroit residents aged 18-25 to receive valuable information about Apprenticeship programs from various Local Union Representatives,” she said. 

A high school diploma or a GED is required to be admitted into any building trades program.  The career fair is hosted by the Michigan Building and Trades Council, Detroit Public Schools, and the Randolph Career and Technical Center.
