Guiding Today’s Youth To Success

All parents want their children to be happy, healthy, and successful, both as children and as adults. As a parent you play a vital role in guiding them along the right path. Teachers also guide students and want them to be successful. As a teacher you understand the challenges and the anxiety many young adults experience as they face choices about their future.

All across Texas commercial building firms are providing opportunities. Whether it’s in an office, or on a busy jobsite, there are exciting possibilities. During the next ten years, the construction industry will need additional workers to cover new work and a retiring workforce. And, consider this: Construction workers’ pay in Texas averaged $55,700, seven percent more than all private sector employees in the state.

Students and young adults are encouraged to explore all the options, but for many, construction is a solid choice. For students, a path to success can start with a career and technical education (CTE) program in high school.
The Construction Careers Academy in San Antonio is just one example.

For young adults still anxious about an uncertain future, know there are many high-paying positions with generous benefits available throughout the state. Building schools, hospitals, and sports stadiums is exciting work. Join us!

“The perception of the construction industry is that of hard hats and hammers, when in reality the construction industry offers many career opportunities beyond that of experienced trade labor including marketing, accounting, finance, engineering, superintendence, human resources and procurement.”
