Help Students Find Meaningful Jobs

Share construction career opportunities with your students.

For 33 years, I taught architecture, building trades and civil engineering classes at Hamilton Heights. I often had the BYF website up to show students visuals... It was also helpful to show construction career options beyond what they knew, which were plumber and electricians.
