Oleta Partners, developers of the SoLe Mia community in North Miami, has partnered with CBT College to offer a free construction training program for high school seniors at North Miami Senior High School.
The seven-month program, which will be managed from the SoLe Mia Local Preference Office, will be held at CBT College’s Miami Gardens campus in North Miami. The program held its orientation ceremony on February 26th, at which 20 participating students and their parents meet with CBT College faculty and staff, Oleta Partners representatives, and local officials.
Oleta Partners, a partnership between LeFrak and Turnberry Associates, and CBT College aim to address the skilled labor shortage by preparing a new generation of qualified construction workers, who will in turn promote industry growth and support the local community. “The creation of workforce development programs allows us to positively impact this community long term,” says LeFrak’s Managing Director of Development & Acquisition, Michael Tillman. “This tailored program will equip students with the right skill sets to prepare them for a future career in construction.”
