Kateri Gerald-Burns, 21, of Boston, completed the Carpentry (Pre-Apprentice) adult evening program at Minuteman Technical Institute in the fall of 2022. The Carpentry program was held in collaboration with the North Atlantic States Carpenters Training Fund, the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters, and other partners.
“It’s definitely worth the experience,” said Kateri, who hopes to start a business flipping houses. “You create networking. We’re able to get a taste in the field for everything… welding concrete, floor covers, drywall.”
“You meet a lot of great people. You create a family.”
