Spearheaded by the National Center for Construction Education and Research and Build Your Future, Careers in Construction Month is held in October to raise awareness about career opportunities in construction and inspire the next generation of craft professionals, according to www.nccer.org.
This year, Build Your Future is asking the construction industry to pledge its support and make a dedicated effort to connect with students during the week of Oct. 19-23—virtually or in person.
For signing the pledge, companies will receive access to exclusive resources, including a website scavenger hunt, Tips and Tricks for Connecting with Schools guide and social media images. Companies also will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $5,000 scholarships given to the construction craft training program of their choice. Sign the pledge.
