For Highschoolers

Dear Teachers/Chaperones, School to Career Colleagues and Students,

The Massachusetts Construction Career Day (MassCCD) event is a unique opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to learn about the many construction industry career paths.  It is made possible through a public/private partnership between federal and state government, industry associations, and labor unions.   The event appeals to a wide range of students’ interests including specific trades, math, mechanics, engineering and sciences.  Students learn about industry careers by interacting with seasoned professionals and participating in hands-on experiences throughout the event.  They are also provided with college, trade school, certificate program, apprenticeship and resource information that will help them make their career decisions.  

The program has been restructured from previous years to now provide a one-day learning experience for students who have demonstrated an interest in engineering or the construction trades.  This focused and innovative approach will help students decide their career paths and give them the information they need to be on their way!  This new program format will provide your students with hands-on opportunities to rotate through a variety of in-depth construction activities designed by our trade partners and based upon the day’s “Building A Bridge” theme.  Activities include digging a trench, using pavement breakers for demolition, welding, cutting and burning, form work, surveying, painting and tying rebar.  In addition, exhibitors will interact with students to educate them about specific job requirements and the skills they will need to succeed.  Exhibitors at the event include construction and related companies, vendors, equipment dealers, labor unions, apprenticeship programs, colleges and other educational and skills-building organizations. 

From heavy equipment operation to engineering and computer design challenges, MassCCD will assist your students in identifying career goals and provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience.   We hope you will consider participating.  

If your students are not able to participate this year, you can still provide the resource information below to assist them in their career decisions.
