Trades Campus – Academy #1 (May)

To ensure women are supported at every stage, Build a Dream has developed Trades Campus, a supportive, engaging, interactive online learning portal designed to address the specific needs of under-represented groups in skilled trades.

Each of the campus’ three academies focuses on the group’s unique needs and equips them with mentorship/role models, support, and much-needed resources.

Academy 1: Students, Pre-Apprentices, and/or Trades as a Second Career

This virtual academy will introduce women in tech classes, youth apprenticeship, or pre-apprenticeship programs (as well as women pursuing trades as a second career) to the benefit and barriers often associated with skilled trades. Using a combination of synchronous online classes, videos and asynchronous presentations, participants will learn more about what to expect with a career in the skilled trades. Overall, the academy focuses on awareness, sharing goals, and getting ready for the next steps.

Dates: May 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26
