Hats off to the 3rd PSEG Ready2Work Class
September 5, 2018- Today PSEG celebrated the graduation of Ready2Work class number three and all of their accomplishments over the past seven weeks. For all graduates, the Ready2Work program is only the beginning of a rewarding career in the construction trades. Representatives from Building Pathways Connecticut and the city of Bridgeport were in attendance to congratulate the graduates on their accomplishment.
For many, the Ready2Work program meant leaving something behind in order to create a better future for themselves and their families. Tanen Whittington, a Ready2Work class three graduate, shared his story and how he felt about the program; “We sacrificed a lot. We have children, we have families and some people had to leave jobs, but this program produced hard working individuals who have the drive to be successful. I hope all individuals of our city and other cities try to attend a program like this.” Students leave the Ready2Work program with a better understanding of not only their future trade but of themselves and their aspirations for their future.
The Ready2Work program is a $600 thousand-dollar private investment in the residents of the city of Bridgeport that trains residents for high-paying union apprenticeships. The apprenticeship readiness training program provides students with hands-on and intensive training over the course of seven weeks at no cost. Students will leave with a better understanding of union labor forces and proper training to aid them in obtaining a union apprenticeship upon graduation.
PSEG is proud to offer Bridgeport residents opportunities such as the Ready2Work program. Hats off to you class number three!
