JLC LIVE New England and This Old House

Join Together to Rebuild the Trades

JLC LIVE New England and This Old House Generation Next have teamed up to promote the importance of apprenticeship programs to the future of our industry. We’re working together to connect building trades students with our contractor attendees in need of labor and willing to put in a little extra time to teach an eager young person their craft. Through outreach to surrounding vocational schools/programs, we're bringing in students who are currently or will be looking forwork. And, we'll have the hosts of This Old House on hand to speak on their personal experiences working with their apprentices.
