Workforce Trainee Meet & Greet

Come connect with adult workforce trainees and support their career pathway into residential construction!

HBA is partnering with Earth Advantage and Energy Trust of Oregon to offer a special day-long ‘Career Pathway Training + Networking Event’ at BuildRight (learn more). Earth Advantage will be providing pre-apprenticeship trainees with advanced green building training, preparing them for a career in residential construction, and bringing them together with energy efficiency contractors and industry employers who are attending BuildRight.

This is where you come in! Join us for a sequence of roundtable discussions where you’ll have the opportunity to meet with pre-apprenticeship trainees and tell them about your background, experience, and pathway into residential construction.

Trainees will be provided coaching and preparation beforehand. By joining this session, you’ll help these students make the most of the experience and benefit from the opportunity to learn from prospective employers (builders, remodelers, developers, specialty contractors and other professionals attending BuildRight) about their work and express any interests they have in specific residential job areas. You might even recruit your next new hire!

(BuildRight attendees are welcome to stop by the Martha Jordan room anytime to sign up for future workforce training opportunities, and will also be able to connect with trainees during lunch and in the sponsor area.)

Pre-apprenticeship training program partners include:
