About Wanda Rogers
Wanda Rogers founded Construction Service Workers in April of 2009. As the Principal Owner of the only Africa-American Woman owned construction staffing agency in the United States of America, and presently certified as an8(a) firm, Wanda has witnessed the need for job creation in her industry to help add value to the economy.
Aware of the demand for skilled crafts-and tradesmen and women, and knowing the need would only grow, Wanda sought a solution that would help not only the industry she was in, but the community she lived in. As one of the few Woman Minority Owned Underutilized Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in the state of California, Wanda established SoCal Pre Apprenticeship Program in 2019 and collaborated with San Diego City College to assist individuals with gaining job readiness skills. Through the program, individuals are aided in finding a pathway towards a desired skilled trade and identifying the many ways of gaining meaningful employment in a forever growing industry.
Focused on the mission to "upskill untapped talent in underserved communities" through the company's universal training program, Wanda is driven by her passion to see underserved community members obtain economic stability. As a pillar in the community, Wanda is passionate about helping others gain employment to earn a livable wage. She wants to impact not only her community, but communities across the country, as she strives to grow SoCal Pre Apprenticeship Program.
Message from the founder: "It is with sincere hope and desire that you are elevated to the next level, to impact your lifestyle with prosperity."
