We know you work hard to set kids on the right path

At Construction Ready, we know that K-12 teachers work hard to prepare kids for the next step in life. For many kids, that’s college. But not all teens attend college, and those who don’t are often faced with fewer career opportunities than their peers.

The construction industry needs these young people. And they don’t need a college degree to begin a great-paying career in construction.

What they do need is preparation. That’s why our K-12 construction programs provide kids with the knowledge, training, skills, and — at the high school level — credentials needed to land their first construction job.

Here’s how to champion a

construction program at your school
