United High School Students to Participate in Pre-Apprenticeships

Starting next school year, United High School in Hanover Township will offer Building Trades 1 and 2, the result of a partnership with the Indiana Kentucky Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters, The Builders Association of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania and the Educational Service Center of Eastern Ohio.

While the building trades program focuses on carpentry skills, the curriculum is broader than just woodshop. Students will gain insight into plumbing, working with sheet metal, pipefitting, bricklaying, concrete and electrical, and learn the foundational skills that employers look for in their apprentices, says United principal William Young.
