Executive Director - Anders & Anders Foundation
Terry Anders is a former union local #377 Iron Worker of 30 years. In 2005, Anders and Anders Foundation (501C3) was established to recruit at risk populations, to break the cycle of recidivism through job opportunities in union construction jobs. Mr. Anders has an excellent success rate for recruiting the “hardest to serve” population into apprenticeship programs.
His ability to connect to the community, and bring a strong work ethic and training emphasis has led to numerous successful city-private partnerships such as San Francisco Mayors Office of Economic Workforce Development CityBuild Academy in job training, recruiting, and retention.
In addition, Mr. Anders brings his union know how to bear to help manage Union requirements, community interests, and build better communications between all partners to ensure more seamless services. His ability to work with ex-offenders and drug rehabilitation centers helps support this “special population” get where they are trying to go with barrier removal, such as driver license, getting union dues paid, and work attire for job readiness.
