The Sherwin Williams Company is partnering with the City of Erie Office of Economic and Community Development to provide “Home Work” paint training classes to City of Erie residents! Sherwin Williams and the City provided similar “Home Work” classes to the community in 2008 through 2014. The City targeted inner-city, unemployed or underemployed residents and prioritized housing authority applicants.
The Home Work Program provides in-the-classroom training, a one day Renovate, Repair and Paint (RR&P) certification training class, on-the-job painting experience, and resume and career building services. Students who complete the course receive a starter paint kit of tools from Sherwin Williams.
