Larry Neighoff, right, senior construction instructor at Baltimore Washington Laborer Training Center, gives direction to Michael Mitchell, center, on how to operate the skid steer loader. About 30 East Baltimore residents are participating in a three-week construction apprenticeship class sponsored by workforce development group Community Churches United, and construction workers union LiUNA!. The plan is that once trained, these residents can apply for jobs as laborers on construction projects planned by EBDI and others.
