Trades Day is meant to excite and introduce students to a variety of construction and building trades by providing real life, HANDS-ON, and interactive trade stations. The students will learn directly from craftspeople who will speak about their path to getting to where they are, what they enjoy about what they do, salary range, and misconceptions about the trades. All ACE students entering the AEC work force will benefit from participating in Trades Day. *Trades Day is not a Trades Show or Job Fair.
The purpose is to introduce trades to students for exposure to the entire industry and not just a part of it. Recruitment of students, mentors, volunteers, sponsors, donors, & community partners. Introduce ACE and the mission to the community and bolster relationships within the AEC communities.
Trades Days are powered by Stanley Black and Decker and their Empower Makers initiative
