ProTechos is a Puerto Rico non-profit corporation founded with the dual mission of rebuilding damaged roofs in underserved communities throughout the island while providing residents with basic carpentry training, addressing both: housing needs and the shortage of skilled construction workers in Puerto Rico.
ProTechos provides roof reconstruction and related vocational training to residents of underserved communities throughout puerto Rico.
Protechos look to local grassroots organizations that are best equipped to assess the urgent needs of the residents in vulnerable communities and identify those most at risk.
ProTechos rebuilds roofs with the help of volunteers, skilled carpenters and trainees, drawn from community residents who are willing and able to work in residential construction.
ProTechos provides basic carpentry training in a “learn and earn” program. Trainees receive minimum wage for time spent learning and building, and they are expected to teach others and continue building in their community once their own training has been completed.
