In Minnesota, a new application from the Construction Careers Foundation (CCF) seeks to bring young people from middle school through their early 20s into the construction industry.
The Construction Trades app, which is available through the Apple and Google Play stores, seeks to engage young people based on how they receive and share information, said Sarah Lechowich, senior director of the foundation. The app’s recent launch is intended to bolster efforts from the foundation on its Construction Career Pathways website to attract and connect potential construction workers with skilled apprenticeship programs in Minnesota.
The application is only in Minnesota, as that is where the Foundation is based. When users reach a threshold where they may be prepared for an apprenticeship, the app can connect them with nearby opportunities.
