Lorrie came through the Martha O’Bryan Center’s Jobs Plus Program with the goal to acquire a job in the construction industry. After completing our Job Readiness Program and our Digital Literacy Program, Lorrie heard about the Nashville Career Advancement Center’s Construction Readiness Partnership.
The Nashville Construction Readiness Partnership was created to ensure that the citizens of Nashville have the access and skills needed to engage in Nashville’s vibrant construction industry. The program develops and implements strategies that match employers with skilled Davidson County employees, and provide training opportunities for residents seeking to enter the construction industry for the first time.
After graduating from the program, on December 9, 2016, Lorrie quickly hit the ground running with her job search and found a full time job as a Groundskeeper / Maintenance Tech at the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency in Nashville, TN.
