Four Days | Aug. 2-5 First-hand Experience

Job Site Tours
Heavy Machinery

If you’re considering a career in construction, but you’re not sure where to start, BuildU is for you. You’ll get four days of first-hand learning, touring job sides, hearing about different trades, and meeting the people who can answer your questions because they’re already on the job.

There is no cost to attend! The SCA will provide lunch, t-shirts, hardhats, and safety glasses. Transportation is provided throughout the day, but participants will need transportation to/from the meeting place each morning/evening. Participants will receive gas cards at the end of each day. One participant who attends ALL FOUR DAYS will win a $100 Amazon gift card.
