The HBA is excited to announce that we will be partnering with Holland Elementary during the 2018/2019 school year to promote construction career opportunities. A group of HBA members (and MSU construction and interior design students) will meet monthly with 3rd through 5th graders to complete small projects while exploring construction career opportunities.
How can you get involved? Please call or email the HBA office to let us know you are interested! We are putting together a committee for this partnership. This committee will be responsible for planning the monthly activities, gathering the necessary supplies for the activity and recruiting HBA members to participate in the activity. BUILDERS – Volunteering at one of the monthly meetings at Holland Elementary will help meet your HBA Membership Participation requirement.
The other immediate need is Holland Elementary has the supplies to build two raised beds and is looking for expert raised bed builders – could this be you?
Please remember – we cannot solve our workforce issues individually, but together we can accomplish great things! Build My Future is a fantastic avenue to interact with high school students, but we need to start the interactions at the grade school level and this is a fantastic opportunity!
Stay tuned for more information about Workforce Development at Holland Elementary.
