The following news release from Fresno City College was received by KMPH.com on Wednesday, May 30, 2012:

Recruiting continues for the third cohort of the Fresno City College Housing Reconstruction Training Program which begins June 8, 2012. The six-month program offers students hands on training, college-level classes and professional skills that will prepare them for entry level positions into the housing rehabilitation, revitalization, and reconstruction of pre-existing homes and buildings. Funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), there is no cost to the participants.

Another component of this program is assisting the revitalization of blighted neighborhoods in the city of Fresno. To date, two homes in the Lowell neighborhood have been refurbished. Working on these homes gives the students their hands on, job-site training while helping rebuild the neighborhood.

To qualify, students must read, write and speak English, be 18 years old or over and pass a two page reading test. A high school diploma or GED is not required.

To apply students can call (559) 442-8233 or attend an upcoming informational meeting.
