    Governor Schwarzenegger Attends Female Inmate Carpenter Graduation - Imperial Valley News, CA
    This program is the first of its kind in the nation for women and is modeled after a similar program for men introduced in 2006 at Folsom State Prison. Both programs are partnerships with the Northern California Carpenters Union Local 46. As part of their training, the inmates demolished an antiquated training center used by female inmate firefighters who train at the prison, replacing it with a new modern structure. The work involved all phases of carpentry where inmates gain proficiencies in various skills including: framing, drywall, taping and texturing, painting, roofing and finished carpentry.
