Build My Future was a HUGE Success in Educating Youth about Construction Careers – Watch Video

Build My Future invited students from throughout the Ozark Region to learn about career opportunities in the construction industry through a hands-on approach. When we say hands-on approach to construction careers, we mean there were backhoes, concrete finishers and cherry pickers to operate, brick and mortar to lay, virtual welding simulators, and even a bridge building contest (watch short video below).

Watch the video clips below and check out the photos. The HBA of Greater Springfield had a booth and was instrumental in the planning and preparation. Ozark Region Workforce Development Board and the Build My Future Collaborative were the driving forces behind this exceptional event. Next year will be even bigger and better!
