MISSION

To raise awareness and connect future industry professionals to the opportunities available to them in the building industry

Fulfilling Careers Don’t Have to Require a Lifetime of Debt

WHERE THE PROGRAM GREW FROM

In 2017 during our strategic planning, the board of directors and members of YBA clearly outlined plans to address the local workforce gap in the building industry. A three-year plan was developed including championing YBA members, building programs and initiatives to highlight the career opportunities, connecting our members, schools, students, and parents, and bringing together the community through partnerships.

The Workforce NOW brand will serve as the umbrella which covers all of YBA’s programs designed to support workforce development.
