The Obama Foundation is committed to creating a diverse, local construction workforce for this project—and we want you to be a part of it.
Whether you’re looking for your first job, returning to the workforce, or anywhere in between, we are here to provide you with the training and support you need to secure a well-paying construction job with the Obama Presidential Center or other exciting projects in Chicago.
The Lakeside Alliance is leading the construction of the Obama Presidential Center and brings together four of the largest, most respected African-American-owned firms in Chicago, with one of the largest construction management firms in the United States.
Members of the consortium include: HIRE360, Chicago Women in Trades, the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters, IBEW Local 134, Revolution Workshop, and St. Paul Community Development Ministries.
We Have Ambitious Goals We believe the Obama Presidential Center should be built by a team that looks like the Center’s surrounding community, and we’re working hard to make sure that happens.
