Mentorship, “Working together for the success of the next generation and the sustainability of the Masonry Trade.”
Do you take pride in your trade? Do you see a need for our work force to grow? Statistically 40-5O % of all first-year apprentices drop out, a large part of this loss is due to the lack of intentional mentorship, many apprentices will move on within the first 12 months if mentorship in lacking. The 50-60% that succeed have had at least one tradesperson invest in them.

If the answer is “yes” to any of the above questions, please consider joining us as we are holding a SIX-hour mentorship class, preparing you to invest in the next generation of skilled workers.

Workshop will cover:

  1. Six steps of mentorship.
  2. Breakout sessions
  3. A. session regarding increasing trade growth.
