Smart, hardworking high school seniors and recent high school graduates who reside in Oak Lawn are invited to a trades presentation at Oak Lawn Community High School this Thursday, Dec. 12.

Oak Lawn Trustee (Dist. 1) Tim Desmond envisioned an Oak Lawn Jobs Program with a goal of assisting current and recent Oak Lawn high school seniors and graduates in jumpstarting their careers with local businesses.

The first-ever trades presentation is the combined effort of Tr. Desmond and community volunteers. Union representatives from the plumbers, carpenters, bricklayers, laborers, and electrical trades will be on hand to explain what an apprenticeship program is and how to apply.

The presentation is directed toward Oak Lawn residents ages 17-24, who are not planning to attend a four-year college.

Local businesses interested in offering apprenticeships and internships for high school seniors and recent high school graduates should contact Tr. Tim Desmond at tdesmond@oaklawn-il.gov, or Josh Jones, assistant village manager, at jsjones@oaklanw-il.gov.

Oak Lawn Jobs' trades presentation kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in the media room at Oak Lawn Community High School, located at 9400 Southwest Highway. Information about parking and a map of the school are included.

Tim Desmond has a lot of nerve after voting to busting a Union

You should know Eom your buddy from the 3rd is the biggest union buster there ever was on the village board

Hopefully when Desmond comes to the unions with his hands out asking for money for his reelection they remember his vote to bust a union

I believe the vote was for saving money not to bust the union. The Trades are picking up and opening their apprenticeships for the first time in years!! This is a great opportunity for our young people to get information they might be not be aware of. You want to take that away from them!? You want to take away the chance to prove themselves, learn skills they can make a living wage on? You don't like what is happening in our village get yourself elected and make a difference. Yes I am a member of the Jobs Program, VOLUNTEERING my time helping with this event. Hijackers not welcome.
