Connecting Students & Employers for Special Training Opportunities

At BuildStrong Academy of Colorado (BSAC), we are dedicated to empowering students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the construction industry. Our mission is to bridge the gap between education and employment by creating meaningful connections between students and employers. We have found fantastic success in partnering with employers in the trades to offer unique training Workshops. Through these, BSAC aims to create more opportunities for employers to connect with students, and for students to explore the trades.

Why Host a Workshop?

Unlocking Opportunities

The problem of attracting good people into our industry has long been a known issue that doesn’t have an easy or straightforward solution. As a non-profit organization, our focus is on equipping students with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in the construction industry. By partnering with us, you contribute to the development of a skilled workforce, positively impacting the future of the construction industry.

Giving Back

By collaborating with BSAC, you become part of a supportive network committed to nurturing talent, sharing industry insights, and fostering professional growth for both employers and students. Working together to offer students the chance to receive specialized training, or to explore specialize trades, helps to create a stronger, more knowledgeable and skilled workforce.

Customized Training

We understand that every employer has unique training needs. That’s why we work closely with employers to provide input, helping them to develop tailored training programs and workshops that align with their specific requirements. Whether you need to enhance technical skills, promote safety practices, or foster teamwork, we can help ensure that you meet your workshop’s goals.

How It Works

Expression of Interest

Employers can express their interest in partnering with us to host a workshop by filling out a simple online form, found below. We’ll get in touch with you promptly to discuss your requirements and explore potential collaboration opportunities.


Our team will meet with you to understand your objectives, proposed workshop plan, desired outcomes, and specific area(s) of focus. This assessment will help us ensure that the desired workshop is a good fit for our students and that we are a good fit for you.

Tailored Training

Based on our assessment, we will work with you to schedule, promote, and support the workshop. From this assessment, we will determine the prerequisites for students to be able to enroll for the training, and we will provide recruitment to ensure the workshop is a success. 

Hosting the Workshop

We will work with you to help arrange the space for your workshop, give you access to our shop to set up anything you may need, and help with the logistics of the event, including recruiting students. Workshops can be held as a special weekend event, outside of typical course hours on weekdays, or sometimes even as part of an ongoing course. We will work with you to plan for whichever makes the most sense for both your needs and our students.

Hiring Opportunities

In the past, employers have used these workshops to scout talents for potential hires. Students are encouraged to bring their resumes and to treat these special courses as a hands-on interview, beyond just the chance to learn new skills. During and after the completion of training, we encourage our students to connect with employers and to provide feedback on the workshop.

Ongoing Support

We believe in providing ongoing support to our employer partners. Our team will stay in touch to offer additional opportunities to connect with our students, host future workshops, and help with your hiring needs. We are committed to ensuring a successful partnership and the mutual benefit of all involved parties.
