Welcome Parents and Educators!
Scroll down to learn more about why the construction trades may be the best fit for your student or child!
You have done all you can over the years to give your son or daughter the best upbringing you can - preparing them for the opportunities and challenges that they will conquer as they embark on building a great life for themselves.
One of the most important things left for you to do as a parent is to offer them advice and input on the many career options they have to choose from.
A construction career in Washington is an option that very much deserves consideration. The industry needs new talent, as about one-third of the existing workforce is about to enjoy the retirement benefits they have earned throughout their construction career. Construction offers good pay and benefits and a career path that provides lots of choices that work for your son's or daughter's specific needs and desires. This industry thrives on teamwork, and welcomes with open arms new young people entering the industry. Rest assured that they will have support from others around them to help them succeed.
This website offers real “earn-while-you-learn" opportunities, available today, for your son or daughter. Construction is vital to our state and to our country, and a profession that one can be proud to be a part of.
We hope you will take some time to explore the many types of jobs in the industry and the companies that provide far more than just a job: a springboard to a great career!
Your hard work and passion for teaching and molding our children for their role in the future of America is so valuable to us all. One of the last tasks of yours as our children graduate from high school is to help them navigate through the wide variety of career options they have to choose from.
Many will continue their education with formal schooling in college on their way to a great career of their choosing. Others may begin additional education and become burned out and impatient with it and seek a job to earn a living before completing a college education. Still others do not want to continue their education formally, and instead seek a job right out of high school.
Construction offers great career opportunities and unlimited potential for students. Earn-while-you-learn opportunities with continuing education, delivered through a mentor or through an apprenticeship program, are great options for your students.
We urge you to put these possibilities in front of your students as additional options for their consideration.
