Together, we can spread the word about the wide range of construction career paths to success and shift the public’s perception of careers in our industry.

Although construction offers job satisfaction, lucrative salaries and high skills, it is facing a critical shortage of workers. To help build a pipeline of talent, BYF is encouraging partnerships between industry and education this CICM.
In 2020, BYF is asking the construction industry to pledge their support and make a dedicated effort to connect with students during the week of October 19-23, both virtually or in-person.
For signing the pledge, companies will receive access to exclusive resources, including a website scavenger hunt, Tips and Tricks for Connecting with Schools guide and social media images.
Companies will also be entered into a drawing to win one of three $5,000 scholarships given to the construction craft training program of their choice. More information can be found at www.byf.org/CICM.
