A Partnership with an Eye on the Future

A Partnership with an Eye on the Future

The Home Builders Association of St. Louis & Eastern Missouri (HBA), through the launch of their first student chapter, has partnered with North Technical High School in Florissant and South Technical High School in Sunset Hills to enrich the lives of students interested in the trades by offering them first-hand exposure to the world of home building.

“North Tech and South Tech have comprehensive construction programs for high school students, making them optimal partners for our new student chapter. With exposure to different trades throughout their junior year and focusing on a specialty senior year, students graduate ready to work in the trades,” said Dale Black, 2018 HBA President. “Our members are excited to present to the classes and give them a look into the residential construction industry.” Several speakers, representing multiple areas of the construction industry, have already visited both schools and shared their experiences while answering countless questions from our students.

The HBA’s goal is to connect members with students to provide job shadowing, internships, and opportunities after graduation. The hope is that this will create a pipeline of talent for the industry while providing high-paying jobs for graduates.

“A career in residential construction allows students to be creative and build the American Dream for local families. We are impressed with the quality of students at North Tech and South Tech and look forward to seeing our partnership benefit students as well as the many companies who belong to the HBA and are in need of skilled employees,” said Black.
