New Haven Construction Training Program Graduates All-Female Class

By: Litchfield Builders
November 17th, 2014

The following is an excerpt from an article by Jiahui Hu of the Yale Daily News.  "The Construction Worker Initiative 2, Inc. — a six-month program that trains unemployed or underemployed New Haven County residents for construction careers — graduated its first and only all-female class on Oct. 23. Since its first cycle in 1999, the CWI2 has annually trained between 200 and 300 males and females combined. However, this year, a national non-profit donor, Wider Opportunities for Women, requested that CWI2 consider running the program solely for women and for a shorter period of time — three months instead of the usual six. This stipulation from WOW only applies to 2014, and next year the program will return to accepting both men and women.
