Bill Howe Techs Mentoring San Diego’s Youth
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday seven young adults from the Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program come to Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. to shadow our San Diego Plumbing technicians.
The Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program (ACMP) is a non-profit program in San Diego dedicated to providing a comprehensive mentoring program of job training and skill development to assist troubled youth in San Diego and help them become productive and independent individuals. The program was founded in 2008 by Andrew Chapman who is also a plumbing technician at Bill Howe Plumbing.
It is with the support of Bill Howe Plumbing that ACMP is able to continue to mentor the youth of San Diego. This on-the-job training allows these students to get valuable insight into the day in the life of a plumber while learning a valuable trade. The students have been paired up with a Bill Howe technician who not only teaches them techniques within the field, but also about customer interaction and the importance of being professional and always communicating with your customers.
It’s important to our company that we give back to the San Diego Community and to continuously raise the bar for the plumbing industry. With this program we hope that these young adults see how a successful and ethical company is run and if they go on to work for a San Diego plumbing company, they will look for a company with our same high standards.
