Co Chair Testimonials
“I started Hammer Heads in the summer of 2014. Back then I barely knew how to use a screwdriver properly. In three months I was able to get a deep understanding of all the different types of trade work available, how critical each one is, and most importantly, how to actually THRIVE in a career in the trades.”
Participating in the program has catapulted my career trajectory. I can now envision myself doing things that two years ago seemed unimaginable.
I love this program so much that when I was offered to become the Youth Committee Co-Chair I literally JUMPED at the chance. In my role I now get to give back and provide dozens of young people with the same opportunity I had. It feels so amazing! I think the most important thing anybody reading this needs to know is that participating in the Hammer Heads Program is not just job training. It is not just “day in the life” exposure. And it is not just simply a stepping stone. Becoming a Hammer Head means you are joining a family.“
“Hammer Heads has been a life changing experience for me. It has restructured my attitude, lifestyle, work ethic and even the way I think. Hammer Heads has allowed me to become an electrical apprentice and afford to support my family. My journey ahead looks promising, unlike before.”
