during this period.

Just as the Boy Scouts and its programs for boys and girls help establish responsible citizenship and nurture youth character development and leadership, the Carpenters under the direction of Mr. Perinar and partnering
managementindoctrinate and support character and skills development across its diverse membership. The Carpenters and its membership hold deep pride in being A positive force in building communities®, and EST
Perinar and organization staff recognize and respect the great role the Boy Scouts of America similarly plays in our communities.

The Apprentice and Training Program of the Carpenters provides four-year apprenticeships across numerous unique crafts and a skill-advancement curriculum that welcomes young people looking to dig in and embark on a career within the carpentry trade.
