Construction Education Foundation

Building the Next Generation of Construction Workforce

The AGC Construction Education Foundation (AGC CEF) was founded by the Associated General Contractors of California (AGC), to develop and promote educational programs that expand and strengthen the professionalism and effectiveness of people in the construction industry. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit benefit corporation, and rely on donations to carry out our mission to establish construction as a viable career option and to promote the development of construction careers.

Board of Directors

The  Board of Directors is comprised of industry professionals, educators representing the K-12 and community colleges, who share a common vision of providing information and resources that, will help to develop the highly skilled workforce so desperately needed by the construction industry. 

Programs & Services

Construction Career Awareness Programs
AGC CEF hosts and partners with organizations to provide Construction Career Awareness Day (CCAD) events across California. The CCAD's provide 9th - 12th grade students the opportunity to meet and interact with construction professionals about the numerous career paths available in the industry. AGC CEF has also launched an exciting new campaign to recruit young people into the construction industry: Go Build California. Go Build is a comprehensive workforce development initiative that seeks to enhance the image of the construction industry and inform young people and their influencers about opportunities in the skilled trades.

AGC Student Chapters exist at accredited two- and four-year schools offering programs in construction management, construction technology, and construction-related engineering. Membership in an AGC Student Chapter provides students with an opportunity to learn, observe and develop their skills with current leaders in the industry. The AGC CEF supports the activities for 12 active student chapters in California.
