The Black Star Project firmly believes that stable communities are necessary for the proper education of our children. What makes a good community? There are many things, but one aspect of a stable home and stable communities are parents who have stable, rewarding, well-paying careers.

The Black Star Project has partnered with several different trades, including the Pipefitters Union, the Electricians, and the Firefighters, to offer information about how to enter these in-demand fields.
