Benzie Co program continues legacy of building trade

The educational training program launched this summer after more than a year of planning by the Advocates for Benzie County. The thrust of START is to increase the number of workers in the construction trades with an eight-week, eight-hour-a-day pre-apprenticeship program. According to a release, the state pilot program provides a $250 weekly stipend for participants if they demonstrate a “good work ethic” and abide by the rules of the program.
