Build My Future – ACE
Construction Career Day & Industry Showcase

Build My Future, hosted by the ACE Sector Board, gives 7th- and 8th-grade students an opportunity to spend a day in the construction industry through an interactive showcase. Hands-on activities  are provided by our industry partners. Included will be educational displays, equipment operations and learning labs. These labs will allow students to try their hands at various construction-industry practices, such as carpentry, electrical, heavy equipment, masonry, welding and more. Students register through their schools.
