Program to Empower Arizona Blacks in Construction


Tucson, AZ -- The Tucson Urban League has launched a brand-new educational program geared towards helping new and already established construction workers and contractors in the Tucson and Southern Arizona area improve their skills and expand their knowledge of the field by providing a 12-session course guarantee to help them get more solid and long-term jobs.

The goal of the educational program is to help empower African Americans who are in the construction and contractor field learn how to start, create and grow their own skills in the field by teaching them the phases of bidding and winning jobs. This includes solidifying their own internal business infrastructure.

The Tucson Urban League has announced today that they will be working with new start-up company, Mind Your Black Biz, LLC, to help spear head this program by providing the training needed for the course.
