Derrick San Pedro

 Derrick San Pedro, Air Force veteran

"Today I learned that there are dangers in working with asbestos, but there are ways and techniques to make a safer environment for employees. It is hard to find a career after getting out of the military. Personally, I like working with my hands and fixing things. I don't have family in the construction field so I don't know how to even start a career in any construction occupation. I like this pre-apprenticeship program because It gives someone like me without any connections or experience in this trade an opportunity." 

Derrick is one of the 25 #veterans preparing for a career as a Heat & Frost Insulator in a unique pre-apprenticeship program to empower and enable veterans to get access to meaningful careers.
