Introducing Our New Staff Members

The Building Pathways team is expanding! This month, we welcomed two new team members: Helen Barrios, our Care That Works Program Coordinator, and Lindsay McCluskey, our new Training Program Director.

Helen Barrios is a first-generation Guatemalan with a passion for community work. She brings her background in the building trades, as well as her extensive experience with young children as a Kindergarten Teacher, Nanny, and Au Pair, to our team. As our new Care That Works Program Coordinator, Helen will help us expand outreach to increase the number of families and providers offering early morning child care, a lack of which can often be a barrier to those looking to enter the trades.

Lindsay McCluskey is an experienced organizer joining us after spending six years at Community Labor United in various roles, including Senior Organizer, Deputy Director, and, most recently, Care That Works Senior Strategist. She has also worked with the Greater Boston Labor Council and the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, where she assisted with engaging young union members and coalition organizing. As our new Training Program Director, Lindsay will work closely with our instructors to ensure our pre-apprenticeship program provides our students with the best training possible, and with our students to secure family-sustaining careers in the union building trades.

We are excited to have Helen and Lindsay at our organization, and we look forward to collaborating with them to further our mission of diversifying the union building trades and making them a more accessible career path.
