DeJuan is born and raised in Springfield. He is married with four children and worked for years as a youth worker and community organizer. Needing a more stable paycheck and benefits, together with a couple of friends, he applied to the Carpenters apprentice program and shortly after became an apprentice carpenter.
The pay and benefits have been tremendous and have enabled me and my family to move from a 3rd floor apartment to a home in a nice community and the skills you learn are forever.
3rd year apprentice Carpenter, member since 2016
