KBA Partners with Disney & Associates to present Trades in Motion Week
By: Andy Arrants- Director of Marketing, Membership & Public Relations
The Kitsap Building Association and Disney and Associates are excited to present Trades in Motion, a five-day program that gives real-life experience to kids in the construction industry. This event takes place July 22-26, 2019. Trades in Motion is designed to bring awareness to home construction trade career paths through a hands-on, educational opportunity in one of five focus areas; Carpentry, Plumbing, Electrical, Painting & Coating, and HVAC.
This program is open to students entering the 9th-12th grade in the 2019/2020 school year. Students will be divided into five groups and will rotate each day into specific trade with an assigned mentor in that trade. Mentors will provide each intern with an opportunity to lear the trade through work experience and formal training.
On Friday, July 26, the event will end with an awards ceremony, where the participants will receive a certificate of completion. There will be an opportunity to meet the mentors, and take pictures.
Registration is limited. Visit https://www.kitsapbuilds.com/education/trades-in-motion/ for more information or to register.
