Build-Pride’s mission is to educate youth, young adults, parents, educators, current workforce, veterans, and outside industry professionals of the opportunities in the construction industry. We kicked off our events this year at the Wichita Riverfest STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) City event.

We are continuing to contact Kansas educators from elementary level to universities, many schools offering NCCER curriculum. We are also developing strong relationships with Workforce Alliance Associations, including TAP-Transition Assistance Programs. Whenever we are able to connect with a school or job fair and share our vision and our plan for Build-Pride, we are met with positive encouragement from all sources.
