Durant High School PACT Tailgater
August 23 @ 6:00 pm
Durant High School, whose NAHB Student Chapter is sponsored by the Iowa City Area HBA, received word in May that it is receiving a 2021 Schools to Skills Grant for $13,000! Join us during the football scrimmage to hear about the HBI Pre-Apprenticeship Certificate Training (PACT) program and see the great things the school has been doing to train youth for the skilled-trades industry.
Grant money is from the Home Builders Institute (HBI) and the Home Depot Foundation; the National Housing Endowment and additional funders. Durant will use it for PACT licensing, instructor training and student assessment fees for two years. PACT is a licensed program that teaches the building trades. The award-winning curriculum, based on NAHB’s Green Building Standard™ and National Skills Standards, is one of only three pre-apprenticeship curricula recognized by the Department of Labor (DOL) deployed in youth training programs nationwide.
