  Clark Invests in Construction Training Program for Bay Area Residents   Clark recently partnered with Chase to develop the Chase Center Training program to attract San Francisco Bay Area residents to the industry. CityBuild, an established City of San Francisco program helped facilitate the curriculum and placed graduates upon completion of the training.  Chase Center Training is a component of the Chase Center Assists community program, a plan of action dedicated to addressing San Francisco’s economic and social challenges to create pathways to opportunity. An idea spearheaded by Clark, the program focuses on providing education and hands-on construction training to low-income and underserved community residents to address the shortage of skilled labor in the Bay Area.   At the conclusion of the program, 33 graduates were placed on construction sites throughout the city that meet their skill level and trade demand; five participants were hired by Clark’s prime subcontractors to work on the high-profile Chase Center project.
