A new training center for apprentice carpenters and millwrights has officially opened in Detroit’s Northwest neighborhood. The Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights’ new state-of-the-art facility will train as many as 1,500 students for in-demand, good-paying, union jobs each year.

In a future of work report, American Black Journal producer AJ Walker takes viewers to the ribbon cutting of the new Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters training center to hear from leaders about how the project came to fruition and what skills training the organization will provide at the new center.
