SAC hosts its first graduation


CLEVELAND: On Friday, July 13, 2018, the Spanish American Committee hosted its first graduation ceremony for its Latino Construction Program.


The Latino Construction Program was created as a product of the Metro Health transformation on Cleveland’s W.25th and Clark area. The program was established in partnership with the Metro Health team, Turner Construction Company, and the Cleveland Building Trades and funded through generous contributions from the KeyBank Foundation, Turner Construction Company, and the Higley Fund.


This 6-week program follows a curriculum that incorporates English language instruction with lessons in safety, unions, opportunities in the trades, among others. Students are also provided with one-on-one job counseling and connected to local unions for pre-apprentice and apprenticeship opportunities.


The graduates were: José Torres, Confesor Alicea Crespo, Giovanni Torres, Joshua Joel Alicea, Jesús Sarmiento, Mauricio Torres, José L. Rivera Martínez, Angel Sierra, Henry Soltren Cardona, Eduardo J. Guerra, Fidel Rodríguez, and Victor M. Matias.


So far, the Latino Construction Program at the Spanish American Committee has placed 30 individuals with local unions making between $14.50 and $20 hourly. The individuals who are already working have collectively earned over $270,000.
