Apprentice Program

For construction of its recent development, Village at Delray, Auburn Communities worked with neighborhood representatives to find and employ 15 unemployed young people from the area. Each chose a trade to work as an apprentice with the various subcontractors. Auburn Communities provided them with hard hats, safety goggles, work shoes and clothes, tools and on the-job training.
