FBA_blackEach year we celebrate October as Careers in Construction Month, an important time for all of us in the housing industry to increase public awareness about the great jobs available in residential construction and related trade professions. But we promote workforce development year round through our Future Builders of America Chapters.

20171113_093441 - CopyOur Gadsden County Chapter was established in November 2017 and since that time this chapter of 18 students has: built a playhouse for the March of Dimes annual auction, built a wheelchair ramp for their school’s newest program on HVAC and spent the day with members from the National Women in Construction during their Law Days and in May they participated as Student Judges for the 2018 Parade of Homes.

If you are looking for ideas to on to start a chapter at your local school, contact the TBA at 850.385.1414.

We encourage schools and members to download a Poster to place in your business or guidance offices to better Careers in Construction options to our future workforce.
