Construction Career Days
YBA’s Construction Career Days are a fabulous opportunity to share an insider’s view of your company with local students in the community who are interested in learning about potential career paths in the skilled trades.
YBA launched their very first Construction Career Days in April of 2018. Matching seven member companies with seven local high schools, the 2018 event promoted awareness of the diverse career opportunities available to students locally in the construction industry.
We plan to grow this program and inspire more young people to pursue careers in the trades! 2019 Construction Career Days will take place April 8-10, but we do have some flexibility if those dates don’t work for potential host companies. We already have six schools lined up to participate in 2019 and we expect several more.
This event is an extension of the YBA WorkforceNOW initiative.

The lack of skilled workers in the construction trades is a big challenge and YBA is committed to being part of the solution. Careers in the skilled trades are a viable alternative to a four-year degree, and often, considerable student loan debt. Our objective is to educate students and parents about the variety of career paths available that are challenging, fulfilling, lucrative and do not require a lifetime of debt. Our programs are geared toward building a better future for our industry by celebrating careers in construction and shining a light on the many opportunities that are alive and well right here in our community!
