CAGC Virtual Connect & Learn: "Get Connected with BYC Virtual Outreach" with BYC Director, Tammy Ford
When: Friday, April 16, 2021 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where: Via Zoom Meeting (link will be sent out the day before the event)
Build Your Career is hosting a “Connect & Learn” event on Friday, April 16th 2021 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. Attendees will learn more about how to get involved with and connected to the BYC program, best practices for conducting virtual outreach, and how to partner with BYC to promote and showcase your construction career awareness outreach activities.
Participants will also learn about two connection platforms available to students, educators and employers in North and South Carolina—the WBL Navigator System in NC and the Tallo System in SC. These dynamic systems feature resource tools designed to better connect K-12 schools with employers’ work-based learning opportunities like job shadowing, apprenticeships and internships and we will walk through steps on how you can get registered for each.
The biggest workforce challenge we have in the construction industry in the Carolinas is getting more good and qualified people into our excellent industry. Our BYC seminar this Friday is an important tool that we all need to learn about and use in attracting young people into the thousands of dynamic and well-paying careers that are out there now.
