What are Construction Career Days?

As more people visit or relocate to the State of Florida, the need for qualified construction workers grows. Everything from roadways to homes and shopping centers are necessary to support the increasing population. The construction of each requires skilled workers, yet the numbers of those entering the field is dwindling.

In order to increase the number of workers in the construction industry, transportation industry officials began an educational outreach program for high school students in 1999. The program is designed to introduce school students to the wide range of career opportunities available to them in the construction industry in a hands-on environment.

Partner agencies and organizations responsible for the event include the Florida Department of Transportation, the Florida Transportation Builders Association, the Suncoast Utility Contractors Association and the Federal Highway Administration.

Word is quickly spreading throughout our school (by both staff and students) on how great we all enjoyed it. We got to see so much and we didn't even see half. It makes everyone want to go back next year.
