What is Project JumpStart

JumpStart is a 14-week construction-training program for Baltimore City residents with a high school diploma or GED. Experienced teachers help students understand job readiness and prepare for success on the construction site. Students also receive essential safety training, financial coaching, a stipend and driver’s education. More than 80% of our graduates are placed in construction jobs, with many leading to solid careers in the construction industry. Project JumpStart also serves contractors by referring only well-screened, job-ready candidates to meet their entry-level hiring needs. Project JumpStart began in 2006 as an effort to provide opportunities in the construction trades to Baltimore City residents. We are a unique partnership between the Job Opportunities Task Force and Associated Builders and Contractors, Baltimore Metro Chapter.
