Support & Inform
For generations, jobs in the construction trades have provided stable employment
and good wages. To reach journeyman status, an apprentice invests thousands
of hours in on-the-job and classroom training—close to the time required to earn
a four-year university degree. Construction workers are paid good wages and
benefits and have access to job growth and promotions, as well as the opportunity
to establish their own business.
CAWS works with youth and adult educators to increase awareness within the schools of possible careers in the construction industry. CAWS also works with state and local funding sources to support the
growth of Construction related training and educational programs across the region.
