The Mission

  • Offer options through High Schools and their Administrators to encourage the students that either cannot decide, or have not thought about what to do, when they graduate from High School to consider our trades.
  • Educate the students and their parents on the benefits of working in the industry including:
    • Competitive wages, get paid while you train.
    • Seriously reduced training and education fees compared to the average four-year college degree.
    • Minimal career obsolescence as society will always need plumbing, heating and cooling.
    • Expanded opportunities for career advancement and owning your own business.
    • Flexible hours and mobility, where society is, our careers are needed.
  • Organize a dedicated group including educators, contractors, and administrators that will dedicate the time and effort it takes to establish a successful program as well as set in place a means of keeping it active and remaining successful throughout the years. If properly initiated, promoted and managed, this program will become successful enough to spread throughout the state. Although we are mainly affected by what happens in the HVAC and Plumbing industries, not all students will be interested in our trades, therefore this program must include all facets of the construction and service trades to attract as many students as possible and be a success.

Around the country, other organizations, and surrounding county schools, have joined forces, making this program a huge success! In one area, over eighty students have participated in the program in the past two years, with thirty-one employers enrolled.

From the end of the second program year, the surveys established:

  • ALL of the student’s eligible want to enroll in the program the next year.

  • ALL of the employers want to continue the program next year.

As good stewards of the community and our industry, it is our responsibility to help correct this problem before it is such a problem for the next generation that it is almost impossible to address. This program assists student decisions and allows them to consider the trades.

Employers- What was the best part about the program?

  • “Teaching fresh, excited, young students about our business.”

  • “Introducing someone new to the trade.”

  • “Students having the opportunity to experience the real work environment.”

  • “Having the opportunity to expose young people to our industry in respect to what the job entails as well as allowing them to see why they may enjoy the career.”

  • “A little extra help when we needed it! Both boys were willing workers.”

Students- What was the best part about the program?

  • “Getting to learn about different trades.”

  • “Working hands on to try it- was great!”

  • “I learned how everything works from the field to the office to using equipment.”

  • “I learned to weld, make ducts, change filters and then went to job sites on deliveries to see how stuff worked and fit together.”

  • “I want to work at this company when I 1graduate next year.”

  • “Did service calls on AC and generators- Did not know this was a career.”

For many students, college is the answer. But for many other students, it could be Trade School. For other students it may be a combination of on the job apprentice training with either Trade School or some specific College courses. Careful planning with all the right information could save families hard earned dollars, help the economy, and potentially give a young person a jump start to their future.
