Construction Trades Day is a unique way to educate local youth about the shortage of skilled labor and the opportunities for ‘Gold Collar’ careers in the Construction Industry right here in their hometown
Ephrata, PA (PRWEB) October 07, 2017
Landmark Homes, in partnership with Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, will host the 4th annual Construction Trades Day on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017.
In 2014, Landmark Homes President, Cliff Weaver, proposed a unique way to educate local youth about the shortage of skilled labor and the opportunities for ‘Gold Collar’ careers in the Construction Industry right here in their hometown.
With that concept in mind, Landmark Homes and Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology came together to create the first-of-its-kind Construction Trades Day-- an interactive event geared toward educating local students, parents, counselors, and educators on the types of career opportunities available in the Construction Industry, highlighting the increasing demand for these high-skill, high-wage positions.
The 4th annual Construction Trades Day will take place on October 10th, 2017. During the event students and participants will be guided through the process of new home construction via presentations and live demonstrations from local trade professionals. Career fields that will be represented include drafting and design, carpentry, HVAC, kitchen and flooring installation, concrete and masonry, storm water management, land development, and heavy equipment operations.
The 2017 Construction Trades Day will be held rain or shine at Landmark Homes' Hawk Valley Estates community in Denver, Pa. Over 300 Lancaster County students and faculty members are expected to be in attendance.
