Not long ago, Robert Dorsey was working a low wage job and struggling to make ends meet. He was skinny, he said, because food often cost too much. He had no car. And he grew even more worried about paying the bills once he found out his girlfriend was pregnant. Then he spotted a flier that promised a career he had not considered. "Working in the water industry is something I never even imagined," Dorsey said recently at the Montebello Filtration Plant, where he now works, filtering the water used by people in Baltimore and the surrounding counties. "This is where 1.8 million people are served," he said. "This is a field that isn't going anywhere. Everybody needs clean drinking water." Dorsey, 26, is one of more than two dozen graduates of the Baltimore City Water Industry Career Mentoring Program, which, in its third year, aims to train young people for careers in Baltimore's Department of Public Works or similar private sector jobs.

Feature story about a Baltimore Department of Public Works Youth Career Mentoring Program, which trains young Baltimoreans for jobs that help clean up the city's polluted harbor. (Lloyd Fox / Baltimore Sun) The idea is to solve two of Baltimore's biggest problems joblessness and polluted waterways. Officials said the Mayor's Office of Employment Development developed the program to address the retirement of seasoned workers in the water industry and a shortage of trained workers to replace them. Jobs to be filled range from working on pipes and upgrading sewage infrastructure to fixing erroneous water bills. Youths receive six months of mentoring and a chance to earn a career in the industry. The program is open to Baltimore residents between the ages of 18 and 24 who have a high school diploma or GED, are unemployed or underemployed meaning they have jobs with low wages and little chance for career advancement. Mayor Catherine Pugh said the program lets Baltimore "take the lead in training the next generation of workers in the water profession." The mentoring program includes job readiness training, introduction to different jobs in the water industry, job shadowing, work with a career coach, and a placement in the city's summer jobs program, called YouthWorks. Participants then interview for full time jobs that typically start at around $30,000 a year. The new employees are put on a path that often leads to salary increases, a department spokesman said. "It's a way for people who aren't college savvy to get a trade that you can do with your hands and still help out and contribute," Dorsey said. "If this opportunity hadn't presented itself, I would have been doing a lot oakley radar violet iridium of job hopping."

Ernest Dorsey, no relation to Robert, is youth services manager in the Mayor's Office of Employment Development. He said the Chesapeake Water Environment Association approached the city about creating a training program for local workers. Officials launched the program in 2015. "The Chesapeake Water Environment Association came to us and said, 'We have a need,'" he said. "We listened to what their needs were and we crafted a program that would expose young people to a career leading to employment. "You shouldn't craft a program just to train people and then have them go home. You have to make sure there are employee opportunities at the end of the road." Charles Allen, 24, completed the program and landed work as a water meter technician. If an older cousin hadn't encouraged him to apply, he said, he'd likely be "in and out of school, working two or three jobs." "I thought I needed to do something better with my life," he said. "Nothing but good things have come from this." Allen and other young men credit city internship coordinator Anthony L. Greene, who runs the training program, with being key to their success. "Mr. Greene is the glue that bridges from YouthWorks to DPW," he said. Greene drills into the young workers the basics of success in a career: Showing up early, working hard, being responsible.
