Commending HBI’s Project CRAFT, Sen. Ernest Hollings said the program should be replicated “to bring its outcomes-oriented approach to adjudicated juveniles to help them become members of this vibrant industry’s workforce and spur the nation’s economy.”
Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX) supplied the House subcommittee with identical language.
Project CRAFT is a construction skills training and job placement program for “high-risk” youths and juvenile offenders. HBI currently operates the program at seven locations in Florida, Tennessee and New Jersey.
