is a nonprofit organization that offers a free pre-apprenticeship program for women considering a career in the construction trades called Pipelines. Modeled after the very successful sister program in Chicago, IL (CWIT), Pipelines will prepare 100 women annually from Clark County, Nevada for successful careers in highly skilled blue-collar construction trades in Nevada by 2022.
The Clark County population is estimated at 2,183,310 (World Population Review), with an unemployment rate of 4.8% (Federal Reserve Bank of Louisiana). Combined with the fact that Nevada mothers are the sole, primary, or co-breadwinners in 59.6 percent of families (Phadke), it is clear that the Pipelines Pre-Apprenticeship Program is greatly needed.
Applicants qualify for apprenticeship interviews through a point system that uses a combination of education, work experience, and written examination results. With completion of NevadaWIT Pipelines, students enhance their math skills and knowledge of the industry and gain an advantage over their competitors seeking apprenticeships and jobs in the trades.
The Nevada Women in Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Pipeline Program consists of 190 hours of quality training as follows:
● Trades Math 1
● Trades Math 2 (Advanced Math)
● Construction Trades 1
● Construction Employment Readiness
● Forklift Operator Awareness
● Random Drug Testing
● First Aid, CPR and AED
● Construction Trades 2 (A Closer Look - Construction Lab)
● OSHA (10-hour Occupational Safety and Health Administration in Construction)
It is our projection to have 100 participants in this Pipeline Pilot Class with a cost of
$ 3,141.00 per participant. Every woman deserves a strong start and the best chance for a successful future. Too many women in the U.S. and around the world are not getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. Be The Change You Want To See In Our World. If you sponsor a Nevada Woman in Trade, you’ll give hundreds of deserving women in Nevada the gift of a brighter future.
The benefits are tremendous! The quality of life will improve for every woman in the program and their families, the Pipelines program will help drive down unemployment and underemployment in Nevada, increase city revenue, and fill the 97,000 jobs that are available this year (OWINN). This will be a tremendous gain for Nevada’s progress towards becoming a state with multiple sources of revenue beyond the gaming industry … and you are a big part of it. In fact, some Unions have already made commitments to increase the inclusion of women in Union Membership, Building Trades, and Training Opportunities.
For just $3,141 per woman, your sponsorship will include a Welcome Kit, updates and monthly newsletters about the program, as well as a host of success stories! Feel free to visit the program anytime and Watch a Woman’s life change and experience the true joy of helping transform a woman’s future.
