Celebrating the Trades

Change current perceptions of trade jobs (skilled laborers) and show middle
grade students that it could be the right path for them.

Communicate the benefits of a job in the trades

  • Salary - live comfortably and still have the American dream
  • Less expensive, less student loans and in the workforce with opportunity to make money sooner
  • Demand for skilled laborers a lot of opportunity available

Show them the variety of jobs in the trades

  • There’s something for everyone
  • Align interests and skills
