Come learn how Building Pathways creates opportunities for low-income area residents, particularly in under-served communities, to access and prepare for building trades apprenticeships and family-sustaining careers in the construction industry. Through apprenticeship preparedness training, outreach to young adults, and advocacy, Building Pathways addresses the need to recruit top talent into the industry while opening career pathways to women, people of color, individuals with disabilities, and transitioning veterans.

Building Pathways is a critical partner in building the construction industry’s workforce pipeline. Our pre-apprenticeship training program prepares under-represented, disadvantaged or low-skilled Boston metro area residents to enter a union apprenticeship program – an effective “learn and earn” model with a long history of providing career ladders and pathways to the middle class. Through outreach to area high schools and youth groups, Building Pathways also educates middle and high school students about career opportunities in the building trades.

There is a HIGH demand for women to enter the trades!
