ABC Keystone Invites Area Students and Educators to Participate in Construction Wars!
Offered Every Spring and Fall – Open to All Area Middle School Students
Workforce Development is a top priority for ABC Keystone. Throughout the year, the Keystone Chapter offers career discovery events and tours of our education and training facility in Manheim, PA.
Over three days each Spring and Fall, 200 area middle school students from our 33-county footprint attend Construction Wars (an interactive career exploration event) to experience hands-on activities with the help of construction professionals. During this Construction Wars event, students have the educational opportunity to see our training facility, work with tools, understand safety requirements, and learn more about the skilled trades while learning to wire electrical circuits, build wooden benches, lay brick, construct PVC pipe projects, and bend sheet metal to create toolboxes. They also discover basic CPR techniques, safety requirements, construction technology, and more.
Construction Wars is an opportunity for students and educators to discover what skills the construction industry needs in its future workforce and how a career in skilled trades is a viable, well-paying alternative career path. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
