Trade a Trade Employers Sign Up

Try a Trade Employer Form

Why?

The best way for students to pique their interest in the skilled trades is to try them. In the words of a local employer who is very committed to hiring apprenticeship students, “Just get them (the students) through the door.” We are doing this in the evening so we can involve parents and guardians so they can be an essential part of this learning process.

What?

A unique opportunity for students interested in careers in the trades to get some first-hand experience in real-world settings with local employers. Students and their parents will spend an evening at various sites learning from skilled tradespeople in a hands-on environment. Students will receive a brief orientation and tour of the site and proceed to learn some new skills related to specific trades in a small group setting. 

When?

Tuesday, Nov. 15 and Wednesday, Nov. 16 - choose either one (or both) of these dates.

6:30-9 p.m.
