Bridging the Gap
Where did our workforce go?

Launched in 2015, the LIME Foundation features three programs: Nextgen Trades Academy - a program that educates underserved youth ages 16-24 in construction; Turner Arts Initiative - a music and performing arts program dedicated to our youth suffering from poor home life, bullying, and teen pregnancy; Senior Activity Program - teaching seniors nutrition and exercise with the goal of reversing or preventing heart disease and diabetes.

Letitia’s discussion tonight will cover:

  • LIME Foundation’s NextGen Trades Academy
  • Their partnership with local programs (Rancho Cotati High School, SAY, Youth Connections)
  • How the Foundation is developing interest in a career in construction with our youth
  • A program video highlighting the NextGen Trades Academy Program
  • How local contractors can help bridge the gap

About Letitia Hanke:
Letitia grew up in Lake County dreaming of a music career. She attended Sonoma State University envisioning a future in the performing and recording arts. An opportunity arose prompting Letitia to take a position at a prominent roofing company.
A stellar employee, she trained in every aspect of the business working her way up through the ranks to general manager and field supervisor. In 2004, she started her own roofing company now known as ARS Roofing, Gutters, Waterproofing, Solar and Electric. In March of 2018 she celebrated 22 years in the industry, 14 as CEO. She currently employs 22 full-time, year-round employees servicing the North Bay.
Letitia’s many accomplishments include the 2014 Small Business of the Year Award from Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsome, the 2015 Woman in Business award from the North Bay Business Journal, the 2017 Entrepreneur of the year award by the National 100 Black Women Coalition; and most recently the 2018 Walmart Community Playmaker award by the Golden State Warriors.
