Obama Foundation commits $850K to hiring diverse candidates for construction of Presidential Center

The We Can Build It Consortium, an Obama Foundation initiative, was created to get more local residents involved in the building trades. We Can Build It is committed to building a pipeline of diverse talent that is not only equipped to build the Obama Presidential Center, but are also prepared to participate in future projects across the city. They have committed $850,000 to train 400 new apprentices from the South and West Sides.

From outreach, to test preparation and job placement, the consortium is ready to help any Chicagoan—no matter their background or experience—establish a successful career in construction. Learn more at obama.org/opc-jobs #opcjobs”
