Building A Better Future: Kasselman Electric's Dedication To The Community
May 12th, 2021
Kasselman Electric partnered with the Multi-Craft Apprenticeship Preparation Program Inc (M.A.P.P.) on Wednesday May 12th for an Open House for Albany, NY’s South End. The Open House introduced Albany community members to M.A.P.P. which intends to increase racial diversity in construction trades.
Kasselman Electric is elated to be able to be able to provide the use of our building at 29 Broad St. to act as the headquarters for the M.A.P.P. program. The Kasselman Electric building was previously damaged by flooding and has since been gutted. The M.A.P.P. program members will receive hands-on training and education about other aspects of the construction trade.
“We are so happy to be able to give back to the community in this way,” Kasselman Electric CEO Becky Kasselman said. “We are always looking to build a brighter future for everyone, and we love that we are able to do that in our own neighborhood.”
Graduates of the M.A.P.P. program will be recommended for apprenticeships within local labor unions. The Rochester version of the program has led to 42 construction jobs for participants since its conception in 2017.
