OPC News: Lakeside Alliance Mentors Local Youth

On Saturday, April 21, Powers & Sons carpenters on the Lakeside Alliance team spent time mentoring and teaching high school students from ACE Amandla Charter School and the Simeon Career Academy in Chicago some hands-on carpentry skills.

As the group built picnic tables for the construction field force working on the Obama Presidential Center job site, the students gained insight about careers in the trades.

Thanks to the Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council and these Powers & Sons Northwest Indiana and Chicago team members for sharing their knowledge:
