  • Evan Magee began a high-earning construction career right out of high school

    “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.”
    – Evan Magee
  • Entering a high school welding program changed the course of Alex Shade’s young life.

    “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.”
    – Alex Shade

K-12 construction programs that prepare young people for the workforce


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?

Construction Ready’s K-12 program connects you with the curriculum, activities, industry introductions, and parent resources you need to build a successful construction program.
Our team also provides guidance that can help you champion a construction program at your school.
