York County, Maine, inmates learning welding trade
The New England School of Metalwork in Auburn, Maine, is taking its classroom on the road. An instructor is traveling around the state in a tractor trailer to attract students and get them interested in the field of welding. Recently, the mobile classroom was in Alfred, outside the York County Jail. Instructor Jon Gradie is teaching some inmates how to weld. The goal of this program is to help the students land a job. If they do, they're likely to stay out of jail, and that's a burden lifted off the county.
