Sisters in the Brotherhood Pre-Apprentice Training

Sisters in the Brotherhood offers a Pre-Apprentice Program, which can lead to a five-year apprenticeship program with the carpenters union allowing you to earn while you learn. The Sisters are particularly supportive of women, minorities, and veterans who never thought about carpentry as a career.
