"The ConstructDiversity Foundation is launching an eight month program (Oct-May) which provides youth with exposure to the different facets and opportunities within the construction industry. Providing mentorship, networking, industry research, with some of the nation’s top companies.
The Program will consist of 9 local Seattle companies and students will spend a couple hours a week with a specific company, each student will spend one month with that company then rotate to the next company.. This will give the students a high level overview into the different job functions and the roles that each company offers. The roles the student will be able to oversee and shadow will range from sales, project management, operations, trades, architecture, etc. Students will not be working or training for a specific job rather their experience and goal for each student is to get exposure to an industry and career paths, to potentially peak interest and see additional opportunities. All while getting direct mentorship from each of the companies executive leadership teams.
At the end of the program students will have an opportunity to interview for a summer paid internship with their companies of interest. Also, each of the students will be provided a personal financial advisor that will help with financial literacy and investments.
Lastly, the seniors in the program will also be eligible for a scholarship after successful completion of the program.
This program is for high school students who are excited about the opportunity to see and learn about an industry that is one of the nation’s longest lasting industries.
**This program will follow the state of Washington’s recommendations regarding Covid-19. So most meetings will be done virtually, further details will be provided at orientation upon acceptance**" - ConstructDiversity
