What is Project JumpStart

JumpStart is a 14-week construction-training program for anyone 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 70 percent of students are placed in careers that lead to high wages and apprenticeships. Project JumpStart began in 2006 as an effort to provide opportunities in the construction trades to Baltimore City residents and is expanding throughout Maryland.
