This fall, UTEC incorporated a new social enterprise into our workforce development options: furniture design. Alejandra Utrera joined UTEC to teach our young people about furniture design and help them develop their own products.
Alejandra’s vision for the program is to provide our youth with basic design and construction knowledge that can translate to future employment opportunities in either furniture design or other construction trades. Young people in her crew will learn woodworking, model making, drawing/sketching and problem solving.
