ReFrame Conference 2021: Construction Workforce Development - One80, Inc. Case Study

Posted By: Adrienne Osborne (deleted) Video Library,
This session is part of the new Construction Workforce Development Cohort curriculum but all conference attendees are welcome to attend.

One80, Inc. is a 52-week faith-based program in Johnson City, Tennessee that was started in 2020. The nonprofit teaches participants skills in construction trades. They also experience a year of sober living and spiritual instruction and receive courses on finance, problem resolution and morals and ethics. Participants get on-the-job training with local contractors and develop connections with potential employers. All of the program’s first class of graduates have been hired as full-time employees through the organization’s partners.

In this session, you'll learn how the organization got started, how it is funded, who its key partners area, and other topics of interest to those interested in starting their own residential construction workforce development program.

The session will be led by Will Crumley, former employee of Appalachia Service Project. He is one of three co-founders of One80. Will also owns Foxfire Builders and Highland Contracting and is the President of the Johnson City Area Home Builders Association. Jose Lopez, graduate of the program, will also help lead the session and also possibly Scott Parker, Co-Founder and Director.

Becca Davis will moderate the session and host the Zoom livestream.
