WorkReady Houston

WorkReady Houston played an important role in building the rail lines.

WorkReady Houston, a comprehensive program inspired by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, was designed to provide job readiness and occupational training for Houston-area workers who are interested in expanding their existing skills or acquiring new construction-related skills and knowledge.

The initiative supported the needs of the METRORail expansion project by providing training in a variety of construction fields, including general labor, equipment operation and surveying. During that period, it graduated more than 150 candidates and had a 100% job placement rate.
