Operation Exit was the first program built under the Office of Public Safety in 2014. It's an intensive, three-and-a-half week training program. We prepare participants for apprenticeships in the building trades through:
- career readiness and job training
- peer-to-peer mentorship, and
- classroom and hands-on learning experiences.
About the program
Operation Exit provides the knowledge and skills required to apply for and enter into a state-registered Building Trades apprenticeship program. We also offer case management and placement services. We want to help participants achieve their career goals. We're providing a meaningful alternative to the violent, often gang-driven conflict in Boston.Operation Exit stats to date:
