Construction Apprenticeship And Building Careers Set
State Senator Malcolm A. Smith has announced that Construction Skills 2000 will have a hands-on demonstration of union apprenticeship programs for high school students interested in the building and construction trades.
Construction Skills 2000 Career Day will take place Wednesday, May 24 at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan. Sponsored by the Building and Construction Trades Council (BCTC) and the Building Trades Employers Association (BTEA), Construction Skills 2000 is a preparatory program training course for high school seniors, giving them preferred access to union and apprenticeship programs in the building and construction trade industry.
“Since its creation four years ago, Construction Skills 2000 has helped to increase the diversity of trades in New York City,” Senator Smith said.
In addition to the hands-on demonstrations, representatives from the BTEA and the BCTC will be available to discuss career possibilities in the construction industry.
“It is important to ensure that students interested in the construction and building industries have avenues open to them. This program helped many of our youth to find apprenticeships. I wholeheartedly recommend that anyone interested attend this worthwhile event,” said Smith.
