Project VOYAGE Apprentice Completes Multiple Projects

Gage, one of BMC’s current Project VOYAGE apprentices, completed multiple projects in the past few months. Thanks to funding from the Erie Community Foundation, Gage and other Project VOYAGE apprentices are learning valuable job skills through one-on-one, long-term mentoring with accomplished professionals. Gage is working with Christopher Laird, a retired FMC mechanical engineer who is also an accomplished boatbuilder and carpenter. With Chris’ assistance, Gage built a shelf for his sister and a wine rack for his mother. Gage has learned construction drafting, the milling process, and how to professionally finish his projects. Chris said that Gage “is motivated to accomplish and finish projects, stays focused, and has become very familiar with various tools and shop safety.”
