Hawaii Building Industry Foundation receives grant from Haseko Training Fund

HONOLULU - The Hawaii Building Industry Foundation (HBIF) has received a $15,000 grant from the Haseko Training Fund which is administered by the Hawai’i Community Foundation to support its work force development efforts. This grant will offer adults 18 and older in the Ewa Community an opportunity to participate in a pre-apprenticeship construction training project named ComPACT: “Building Skills to Build Lives”.

Karen Nakamura, Executive Director of the Hawaii Building Industry Foundation stated, “This generous grant from the Haseko Training Fund will support our community educational outreach programs. We target non-traditional students who are unemployed and under-employed, so these funds will provide opportunities for participants to gain the necessary knowledge and job skills for entry level positions in the construction industry.”

Project ComPACT is scheduled to begin in July 2013 and scholarships are still available. Download an application here.
