Meet Tyrone

After finishing our Pre-Apprenticeship program, Tyrone Bell became an apprentice electrician. While Tyrone was working on Brown University’s engineering building he got together to talk with Inventing Heron about what it’s like on the job as a second year apprentice.

I heard about the Building Futures program and it basically was, I want to say, my last chance of making something of myself. They help you out- they teach you a little bit of each trade and they tell you what you’re better suited for.

Watch the whole conversation.
