Roosevelt H.S. Launches Pre-Apprenticeship Program with Local 66
ROOSEVELT, NEW YORK (JANUARY 2024)—The Roosevelt School District and Laborers Local 66 celebrated this week the launch of an impactful new construction pre-apprenticeship program at Roosevelt High School. The LEARN Program, created by the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), equips students with applied academic, work and life skills that provide them with a solid foundation to enter a U.S. Department of Labor-Recognized Apprenticeship program.
“At Roosevelt, we are always looking for versatile career-training opportunities that provide our scholars with the resources and skills they need to succeed upon graduation,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Deborah Wortham. “We are so excited for this partnership with LIUNA and Local 66, which will provide for our students a pathway to pursue a thriving career in the construction industry.”
