Team One Credit Union and the Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) proudly presented a combined $20,000 grant to the Greater Michigan Construction Academy to train students for careers in the high demand field of skilled trades. 

This Community Reinvestment grant provides funds for training of high school juniors and seniors interested in skilled trades in Genesee, Tuscola and Sanilac counties through GMCA’s nationally certified pre-apprenticeship program. Students will receive training in electrical, HVAC, welding, carpentry and plumbing. STEM training, financial literacy and budgeting will also be key components of the training program. 

The purpose of the grant is to provide students in these counties with the opportunity to pursue a career path that leads to employment in one of the thousands of current and future high paying skilled trade jobs available and in turn, help build stronger Michigan communities now and in the future.
