Construction & Associated Career Awareness Day: May 15

On May 15, 2014, nearly 2,000 students from LAUSD high schools will pour into the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College for a hands-on introduction to the construction industry.  A wide variety of industry partners will be joining us to share their expertise and offer job opportunities in construction including: contractors, construction supply companies, union apprenticeship programs, solar companies, colleges, trade schools, training programs and more. 

As the nation’s second largest school district, and with a building and modernization program totaling almost $20 billion, it is our duty to encourage today’s youth to seek careers in the construction industry and explore the many different career paths available to them.  This is an unmatched opportunity for our students to interact with future employers and ultimately ensure that the construction industry will have the talent necessary to continue this important work – at LAUSD and beyond – well into the future.
