Case Study: Edward J. Malloy
Construction Skills
Pre-Apprenticeship Program

Ester R. Fuchs, Dorian Warren, Kimberly Bayer
“Construction Skills is the most successful construction industry pre-apprenticeship program in the country”
“An Extraordinary Return on Investment for Minority Youth in Construction Skills”
“The Construction Skills pre-apprenticeship program should be adopted as a national model for training minority youth for middle class careers in the construction industry”
These are just some of the conclusions from a new report by Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs on The Edward J. Malloy Initiative for Construction Skills.

We urge you read this report (click here or on reoprt image), which is a thorough analysis of the unionized construction industry’s efforts to promote opportunity, diversity and results in New York City.

It clearly documents that there is a path toward responsible development and public policies to support middle class careers in our industry, and that path runs through the unionized building and construction trades.
