Black Star Project

Become a Bricklayer - Join us on Thursday, January 26, 2017, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at The Black Star Project, 3509 South King Drive, Chicago, Illinois to learn about entering the Bricklaying Trade. Bricklayers apply mortar to bricks and scrape off excess. They lay and stack bricks neatly in order to build walls and various structures. Bricklaying requires a high school diploma and 0-2 years of experience in the field or in a related area.

A good bricklayer has knowledge of commonly-used concepts, practices, and procedures within this field. They rely on instruction and pre-established guidelines to perform the functions of the job. They works under immediate supervision and typically report to a supervisor.

Bricklayers in Chicago earn between $47,039 and $63,313 per year. While people of all ages are invited to participate, we are especially inviting 16 to 24 year old men and women (and their parents) to attend this session. Please call 773.285.9600 to RSVP for this free session sponsored by U.S. Bank.
