Learn to Build! is a free after-school mentorship program that gives students the opportunity to work with plumbers, sheet metal workers, carpenters and electricians to learn introductory skills needed for careers in the trades. Explore career field within the industry. Gain experience and learn new skills. Connect with construction professionals and students from other Clatsop County high schools. Students who complete the program will receive a free set of basic hand tools. We also will be completing a project to build a new ticket booth for the high school, which has an older derelict shake that is not usable.
We have partnered with AGC, Girls Build!, and a variety of other industries and groups to provide opportunities in the past, and continue to look for partnership opportunities like this one.
