T3 PROGRAM

TRANSITION-TO-TRADES

WHAT IS THE T3 PROGRAM?

We are passionate about helping young people develop and grow to impact their friends, families, and communities. We recently completed our 3rd year of what we call our T3 program. T3 stands for “Transition To Trades”. While our 8-week T3 program certainly teaches construction skills and practices, it is about much more. We have classroom days that focus on helping our students become better people, regardless of whether they spend the rest of their career working for DJ or they move on to other things. We are thrilled with the growth of this program and were able to place all 6 of our students with jobs in construction upon graduation from our program.

HEAR IT FROM THE STUDENTS

They took us straight into the work field and we just started working and getting our hands dirty. There’s a new thing to learn every day. My on-site mentor kept telling me to aim for better, to keep trying, and to keep doing good. I can tell that these people here care about me, a lot. They really do. This program was amazing. I’m glad I took the step forward and I feel like I can achieve a lot of things now.

We built tiny homes for Faith Nation and that was a lot of fun. This program lets you know whether or not you like the trades, and if you do, it trains you to fulfill what you want to do in the trade. I enjoyed it. I came into it open-minded to learn whatever I could. Everyone’s been really helpful teaching me what I need to learn, making sure when I mess up, “Ok here’s what you did wrong, here’s how you fix it.”, so that way I learn.
