The  Carpenter Apprenticeship program is a paid apprenticeship providing comprehensive training for individuals looking to learn a trade, and further their career. This is a unique opportunity for apprentices to receive hands on, one-on-one instruction across all skill sets on a Habitat for Humanity job-site.

 

The apprenticeship provides an avenue to advance leadership and teaching skills, through working with volunteer groups, and future homeowners. Apprentices will be required to plan, and lead groups with varying skill sets. This program further provides an avenue for apprentices to learn about planning, development, and the construction of affordable housing and the benefits that homeownership provides to individuals and families in our community. This apprenticeship is transferable to any other qualified program in the state of Wyoming.

When you graduate from this apprenticeship program, you are almost guaranteed immediate job placement in the trades.
