Educating and inspiring the next generation toward construction careers
Each October, more than 1,200 high-school students and educators spend a day learning about the multiple construction-career pathways available to them in a practical, engaging format. King County Construction Career Day is a collaborative, connected effort of volunteer support from all sides of the construction industry. School programs, construction firms, trades training organizations, young professionals and more come together to showcase the construction industry through three main attractions: hands-on heavy equipment; interactive indoor exhibits; and a tour of the University of Washington’s Center for Education and Research in Construction (CERC). Thanks to your generous support and passion for the construction industry’s future, the following program enhancement was made possible this past year.
Construction Leadership Council (CLC) support
Students experienced each exhibit with the help of AGC’s Construction Leadership Council (CLC) “ambassadors” – young professionals who volunteered to lead groups through each portion of the event. Ambassadors introduced high-school students to the various pathways into construction careers and offered unique insight into the day’s attractions.
We are looking forward to King County Construction Career Day on October 10, 2019. We hope to see you there!
