“We got to talk to electricians, welders – any type of construction career path that you can think of, we got a little taste of it. I saw these different opportunities and I thought, ‘This is what I want to do.”
“In high school, it’s books, books, books – everything you need to know is in a book. I can’t pick up a book and learn; I have to do it. So if you’re like me, construction is a lot more fun. If you’re a person who’s hands-on, construction is a good job for you.”
You know that a construction program would be an asset to your school community. For young children, it’s a perfect introduction to a field that’s full of opportunity. For high schoolers, your program can provide exposure to new career fields and connect them with actual jobs and apprenticeships.
But how do you go about it?
