Women Who Weld, Part II (2016)
Co-Learning Plan - 2016
Authors: Samantha Farr, Women Who Weld
Access to free or low-cost training programs that teach people skills needed for jobs that offer sustainable wages is critical for both human and economic development in Detroit. Farr provided free training in welding, career development, and communication skills, and hired a co-instructor, Ralph Taylor, to assist with training in Women Who Weld’s second round of funding. Farr developed a curriculum and replicable framework for an intensive welding training program that produced a direct economic benefit to the community. Please reference Women Who Weld’s Program Overview for information on the problems facing the welding industry, Women Who Weld’s solutions to addressing these problems, and the results of their efforts in and around Detroit.
