About the CREATE Program:
Since 2007, more than 150 local construction managers, contractors, engineers, architects, suppliers, and tradespeople have signed on to bring their experience and knowledge into the high school classroom. By acting as professional role models, trusted friends, and career advisors, they make a significant contribution to the community while helping to develop our future work force.
This year, the structure of the program was refined to reflect the industry trend toward collaborative delivery methods and to build the problem-solving skills of our youth. Our goal remains intact: to educate and inspire students to pursue career pathways that create the built environment.
By educating and inspiring students about the industry and the rewards of a career in the field, the CREATE Program helps to guide students toward fulfilling careers and ensure that future generations of professionals will fill the pipeline with talented and skilled workers.
