BuildStrong Academy of Colorado (formerly Colorado Homebuilding Academy) is a collaborative, industry-driven training organization created to solve the construction industry’s need for skilled workers.
When you support the Academy, you support the entire construction industry.
Invite the Academy to speak at your trade meetings. Encourage your sub-contractors to be part of the solution, and support them when they do!
To prepare our adult students for job interviews, we host career fairs once a month that allow our students to practice speaking with real employers. Oftentimes, the employers who attend these job fairs hire qualified students who they meet at these events.
We are seeking employers who are willing to offer mentorship and professional development to our dedicated, skilled Youth Construction Apprentices through paid internships ($10-12/hour). At the end of the youth apprenticeship, we hope that employers consider offering summer employment or full-time employment to these apprentices.
Each week, we invite leaders in the industry to give a career talk to Construction Skills Bootcamp students. This is an opportunity for the speakers to share their personal stories and to recruit talented workers.
