Construction Career Awareness Days

As part of the Construction Career Awareness Program, the AGC Construction Education Foundation sponsors Construction Career Awareness Day (CCAD) events. CCAD events provide 9th – 12thgrade students the opportunity to meet and interact with construction professionals to experience first-hand the numerous career paths available in the industry. 

Each CCAD event has a host company or organization that takes on the bulk of the responsibility for the planning and implementation of their CCAD event. Students experience interactive exhibits from local area contractors, suppliers, labor unions, apprenticeship programs and education providers and institutions.

Although the events vary from city to city, the overall goal of CCADs remain the same: to outreach and educate the next generation about the diverse and rewarding career opportunities available to them in the construction industry.
