The A.Allbright Painting Apprenticeship Program called Paint It S.M.A.R.T. stands for Single Mothers And Responsible Teens.
We are looking for a few good high school or college students that want to learn a trade who find themselves in a family home without a father to teach them. We have put together a summer program that consists of many different aspects of learning the painting trade and will help them gain the experience necessary to get a job down the road.
They will have a chance to gain experience with such important aspects like:
Going on an interview
Hiring process (including drug and background test)
Classroom & safety training
Reading manuals and books
Learning craftsmen operating procedures
Hands-on experience and team work
This program was developed by Joshua Abramson, the president of A.Allbright Painting for over 23 years, because this issue really resonates with who he is and the culture of the company. Josh is someone who came from a home with a single mother on welfare. It was very tough at times and he understands how hard it is to make it out there without a father to guide you, especially in these times. Josh is very thankful for those who have come alongside of him and have helped mentor him. Without these men in his life, he wouldn't have been able to grow his business to be what it is today.
"Reaching down, lending a hand, and pulling someone up" is part of the culture of A.Allbright. Our more experienced craftsmen have been training the younger guys through our "green" book, which consists of written-out procedures of how to do things "the A.Allbright Way." Part of our company's mission statement is that A.Allbright will always seek the betterment (improvement) of:
At the conclusion of the Paint It S.M.A.R.T. summer program, the company and the students will be painting the SCV Food Bank building as a volunteer project. In addition, each student will receive a Certificate of Completion, and since they have learned skills necessary for a trade, they will be better able to gain employment with a variety of companies and quite possibly A.Allbright Painting.
