Providence vocational training program gets $1.1m


A vocational program that provides education and job skills training to young people who drop out of school has been awarded $1.1 million in federal funds. YouthBuild Providence will use the Department of Labor funding over the next two years to help provide at least 64 18- to 24-year-olds with academic training and on-site work experience in the construction trades. Senator Jack Reed announced the money on Monday. Anthony Hubbard, director of YouthBuild Providence, said dozens of young adults rely on the program to get educational and occupational skills that will help them prepare for college and the workforce.
