The AGC of NW Ohio provides resources that can help you decide if a career in commercial construction is right for you. From classroom visits to one-on-one meetings, call Pam Mohler at 419-241-3601 to schedule your session.
A career in a commercial construction trade begins with an apprenticeship. An apprentice will learn both in the classroom and on the jobsite. They receive wages and benefits and -- in many cases -- credit hours towards an Associate's Degree. Those who complete an apprenticeship become a Journeyman.
The Draft Day program is designed to help students plan for a career in commercial construction before graduation so they can take advantage of opportunities as soon as they have a diploma! This program offers soft skill training, mentorships and job-shadow opportunities.
Seniors in the program spend the school year getting ready for the job market. On Draft Day, they are introduced to contractors and union business agents who are hiring!
In this program's first year, approximately 20 Draft Day participants went right from high school graduation into well-paying commercial construction apprenticeship programs. An additional five will be pursuing construction-related degrees and have connections to secure co-op spots!
