Background Information: In 2022, the Young Erie Philanthropists granted $15,000 to the Erie Center for Arts & Technology (ECAT) to expand their construction trades initiative in Erie County. ECAT is an incredible nonprofit that offers programs at NO COST in career training and the arts. Through ECAT's tuition-free construction trades program, students train as carpenter’s apprentice, and then are prepared to work in a variety of construction jobs.

We hope you can join us!
