Advancing Hands-On Trade Experience with Lake Street Works

Thursday, January 5th, 2023

Prior to this year, an after-school program that furthers career skills for high school students in South Minneapolis was unheard of. Seeing this gap, Jess Coykendall alongside others formed what would soon be known as Lake Street Works (LSW).

LSW serves the South Minneapolis community by providing seniors in high school with the opportunity to learn more about construction trades as well as general life skills. Many of the students in this urban area would otherwise not have access to these resources within their school or home life.


  • Students meet twice a week after school and are paid to attend (much like having an after school job)
  • At the end of the program, graduates of LSW will be equipped to either enter full-time employment, apply for an apprenticeship/specialty trade certification, or enroll in a post-secondary technical training program. 
  • The inaugural class of Lake Street Works will graduate in June 2023. 

Several Egan leaders, Kurt Johnson, ATS Director of Sales, Jason Rosati, Vice President of Electrical Special Projects, and Mike Tengwall, Senior Vice President of Electrical, were guest speakers to the class and shared about their experiences in the trades as well as answered any questions the students had.

Egan also donated work shirts and PPE for all of the students who are part of the LSW program. In the coming year, Egan’s Mechanical team will be working with Ryan Companies to assist in designing and building their new training center.
