Big Thoughts

JDP Apprenticeship Coming Soon

Think Big for Kids is working closely with JDP Electric to bring an exciting job opportunity to graduating seniors at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay.  Jeff Priede, owner of JDP Electric has offered to hire and support one of our students on their path to becoming a licensed Journeyman Electrician.

The awarded student will commit to a five-year career pathway which includes working for one year as a helper at JDP Electric and then enrolling in a four-year trade school program to attend while working as an apprentice with JDP Electric.  JDP Electric will cover all academic expenses as part of the students’ paid apprenticeship.  Upon passing all certification exams, the student then will be invited to join the JDP Electric team to manage their own jobs.

JDP Electric is a Founding Partner of Think Big for Kids and has participated in Career Showcases since our pilot program.  Thank you to Jeff and JDP Electric for their commitment to offering high quality job pathways to students through Think Big!
