The Alliance’s Construction committee is focused on engaging area high schools and post-secondary schools in career pathways available in the construction and skilled trades industry. Like many other industries, construction is facing a workforce shortage that is projected to increase in the coming years. By partnering with area high schools, the Construction committee works to engage students, parents and educators to learn more about career pathways, salaries and options available in the skilled trades. Annually, the Construction committee participates in the Alliance’s MADE Career Fair, which brings 800 high school students to learn about career paths in the manufacturing, construction, engineering and automotive industries.
