Launched in 2016, the Los Angeles Reentry Workforce Collaborative is a partnership between ARC, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, the Los Angeles and Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council, Miguel Contreras Foundation, and Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC). The Collaborative developed and unveiled the Second Chance Union Training Program, a first-of-its-kind, high-quality training program for formerly incarcerated people that incorporates both technical education, soft skills development, and supportive services.

Following two weeks of soft skills workshops, participants enroll in a pre-apprenticeship training course offered by LATTC using the Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3), developed by the North American Building Trades Union and designed to meet union standards. The 12-week program places participants directly into paid union apprenticeships in the Building and Construction Trades following graduation.

Since the program launched in August 2016, ARC has enrolled 195 participants in the Second Chance Program across six cohorts. In total, 145 individuals have graduated the program and 114 graduates have been placed in apprenticeships in the following nine unions: Electricians, Laborers, Carpenters, Sheet Metal Workers, Ironworkers, Pipefitters/Plumbers, Operating Engineers, Cement Masons, and Painters.
