Youth Initiatives


When it comes to career exploration for young people today, the construction industry suffers from a lack of exposure. The construction trades are an excellent option for young adults who are both capable of the rigors of the industry and who are seeking economic independence through a fulfilling hands-on, physical, family-wage career.

CAWS is committed to partnering and developing initiatives that create opportunities for young people to connect to the trades.

Working in partnership with local communities and key employers, CAWS facilitates communication between industry and school districts across the region.
