Tekton Builders construction company is launching a non-profit, workforce training program for 18 to 25 year old men and women.
They call it Builder Academy. The young company’s President Carter MacKey said the two year Builder Academy program hopes to fill two needs in the Richmond community.
One is skilled labor. The other need, CEO Stephen Jenkins said, is opportunities to help young people find a job, a passion, and a future.
Jenkins said others in the industry are pitching in.
