about the training

4:13 Strong is a faith-based Middle Tennessee program that radically transforms the lives of young men (age 18-30) who are unemployed or underemployed. By immersing them in an intensive, six-month residential program, 4:13 Strong provides a lifeline for them to succeed personally and professionally. Our curriculum is focused on providing both professional and life skills training.Through this training, participants earn three certifications that are relevant within the construction industry: NCCER Core, OSHA 10, and Aerial Lift (Scissor and Boom). We also provide a life skills curriculum in order to prepare them for life and work (Money Management, Parenting, GED prep, Bible Study, AandD counseling if needed), Career Readiness and Physical Fitness. Once the men have earned their certifications, 4:13 Strong helps them secure meaningful, full-time employment. We transport all of our men to and from work every day until graduation.

application process

We offer four classes per year. January, March, May and July. Interested youth should contact us prior to the beginning of the month to apply. 4:13 Strong provides full time job placement in the construction industry for all youth who complete the 40 days of training and pass a drug screen.
