The Melrose Construction Trades Program provides training for young people on probation with skills for this high growth/high demand and economically vital industry for Oklahoma and across the U.S.; academic skills toward a high school diploma or G.E.D.; and critical life skills, all helping to deter them from a life of crime. Training focuses on:
- General Carpentry
- Framing/Drywall Installation
- Construction Math
- Safety (OSHA-10)
- Construction Terminology
- Communication and Employability Skills
- CPR and First-Aid
This program helps keep individuals who have already committed a crime for which they received probation from a future life of incarceration. Recidivism rates for students participating in the Melrose Construction Trades Program are significantly low, and a very high percentage of students have been successful in the construction industry and as productive citizens.
Guidelines for participation
Participants must be between 18-39 years old who have been placed on probation for various offenses, none of those being of a sexual or predatory nature.
