A key component of the Foundation’s mission is to promote careers in construction and help candidates find positions with employers who offer competitive pay, benefits, and opportunities for advancement based on merit. This is why we partner with the Ohio Valley Associated Builders and Contractors.
The Ohio Valley ABC is over 300 of the region’s most highly respected construction employers, each continuously seeking to find individuals interested in pursuing a career in construction, each continuously investing in employee skilled trades and safety training so as to create the most productive workforce.
The foundation recognizes that not every individual interested in a rewarding new career in the skilled trades will choose construction; some may prefer a rewarding career in Manufacturing. This is why we partner with the Dayton Region Manufacturer Association. Like Ohio Valley ABC for construction, DRMA represents hundreds of manufacturers in this region looking to hire people interested in skilled trades careers.
Making Ohio is an effort by the Manufacturing Industry to educate individuals about the numerous rewarding skilled trades careers available. We proudly link to their resources.
The National Center for Construction Education and Research creates the classroom curriculum used in skilled trades training and registered apprenticeship programs.
