Builder’s Choice invests in Chanlyut grads by giving people a second chance
If you want a reliable employee who’s determined to do a good job, says Sam Alston of Builder’s Choice, you could do worse than hire someone from Chanlyut.
“The men who’ve gone through the program have made the decision to better their lives, and they’re focused on succeeding,” he said. Some of the workers who come to Builder’s Choice, a construction retailer and manufacturer in Anchorage, already have a background in construction, says Alston.
But more importantly—thanks to Chanlyut—they all have the values that make them hardworking, responsible, accountable employees.
Finding work with places like Builder’s Choice can make all the difference in succeeding beyond the program, says Chanlyut graduate Joe Nick, a polyurethane foam sprayer who has worked with the company for nearly three years.
“If it wasn’t for companies like Builders Choice, people like me that are trying to get back into the workforce would have a really hard time.”
Builder’s Choice invests in men like Joe Nick because the company believes in giving people a second chance, adds Alston. “I believe that everyone deserves to be looked at with grace and to have the opportunity to succeed on their own.”
