About the BUILT Program
The NRCA Building Up Inclusive Leaders In Trades (BUILT) program is a two-week-long construction program designed for students in Grades 9 and 10 who are interested in exploring various trades and construction-related fields.
Here are the program highlights:
- Introduction to trades (carpentry, electrical, roofing, etc.)
- Exposure to critical construction areas like project management
- Hands-on learning experiences to build a shed from scratch taught by industry leaders and tradespeople
- Development of problem-solving skills and collaborative teamwork
- Knowledge in blueprint reading, tool usage, and construction principles
- Emphasis on diversity and inclusivity in the trades and construction industry
- Opportunities for women and underrepresented groups
- Meals, materials, safety equipment, and tools are provided for students
This program offers an excellent opportunity for students to explore their interest in trades and construction while gaining valuable experience and skills that will prepare them for future careers in these fields. The shed that is constructed will be auctioned off at the NRCA awards nights on September 9th to help expand the program.
