Trades Campus – Academy #2 (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 2: Apprentices & Journeypersons

This virtual academy will focus on women who are already in the trades. Using a combination of synchronous online classes, videos and asynchronous presentations, participants will learn about resources available, skills required to advance, and how to build their network. Overall, the academy focuses on networking, sharing goals, and planning future moves.

Dates: May 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26
Time: 7:00 – 8:00 PM EST
