Weld to Work is on a roll! 2.0 Up Next!
In addition to 5 more amazing graduates joining the our cohort of alums we are getting ready for the 2 ND W2W 2.O of the year! Congrats and well done to this fun, successful and dedicated group! Shout to our the super cool and talented Instructor, Luke Montes, and Teacher Assistant, Anita Jackson! You do it again!
This is the third team who has applied their skills to fabricate functional and artistic community benches to be installed on the Rhode Island Hospital campus. Each bench is composed of both new and recovered materials from Rhode Island Hospital’s historic SW Pavilion.
Weld to Work provides job training that focuses on teaching employable metalworking skills. Each participant was introduced to studio safety, basic metal working tools, hand and power tools that cut, connect, grind, and drill; including the oxygen-acetylene torch, plasma cutter, and MIG welder.
The Steel Yard will be following up with each of the program graduates over the next year to discuss resources and career opportunities within the metalworking field and beyond.
More questions? Please contact the Steel Yard at 401-273- 7101 and ask for the Workforce Coordinator or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s next? Each participant will spend the next year working with our Workforce Coordinator and getting connected with meaningful opportunities. Often times Weld to Work graduates return to the yard as Teaching Assistants, Studio Monitors, and Public Project Fabricators!
