What is Project JumpStart?

Baltimore’s Original Pre-apprenticeship Construction Workforce Development Training Program

Project JumpStart, Inc. (PJSI) is a 15-week pre-apprenticeship 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 with an overview and focus on entry-level electrical, plumbing, and carpentry trades. Students also receive essential safety training, construction math, 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 and apprenticeship opportunities 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.
