Sean knew from a young age that he wanted to work with his hands. He had spent countless hours learning from his father and helping his family’s curtain installation business in San Francisco.

Through a JVS program at John O’Connell High School in San Francis, Sean was able to graduate high school and turn his love for carpentry into a promising career path.  Sean is a union Apprentice Carpenter at the Historic Pier 70 Project, where his skilled work in restoring antique windows is playing an important part in the transformation of the city’s landscape. “My path was not straight and narrow. JVS opened doors for me and helped me figure out each step. I’m grateful to have a career that allows me to pay my bills and help my parents,” shared Sean.
