Team One Credit Union and MCUF Expand Skilled Trade Training

Team One Credit Union’s partnership with the Greater Michigan Construction Academy (GMCA) will increase training for careers in the high demand field of skilled trades in three schools in low income areas of Michigan. Leveraging a Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) grant to increase impact, a total of $20,000 in support has been provided for these programs.

This Community Reinvestment grant provides funds for training high school juniors and seniors interested in skilled trades in Genesee, Tuscola and Sanilac counties through GMCA’s nationally certified pre-apprenticeship program. Students will receive training in electrical, HVAC, welding, carpentry and plumbing. STEM training, financial literacy and budgeting will also be key components of the training program.

The purpose of the grant is to provide students in these counties the opportunity to pursue a career path that leads to employment in one of the thousands of current and future high paying skilled trade jobs available, and in turn help build stronger Michigan communities now and in the future.
