Builders Bridge: Summer Internships

Builders Bridge…an initiative expanding into the Triad this year…is creating pathways for students (ages 16-23) interested in construction.  Currently there are more than 60 applicants interested in internships this summer.

We need companies looking to grow their workforce to consider providing summer internships from June 21 – August 13.  Builders Bridge will provide the coordination as they have interviewed the students and will work with local employers to place and monitor students throughout the internship process.

Some of the specific trades in demand include:

  • Carpentry
  • HVAC
  • Plumbing
  • Flooring
  • Painting
  • Tile Work
  • Roofing
  • Concrete Flatwork
  • Drywall Installation
  • Window & Door Installation
  • Landscaping
  • Masonry / Brick Laying
  • Framing
  • Exterior Siding

Workforce Development is one of the greatest challenges our industry faces today. We need members to participate in giving students an opportunity to learn more about our industry. If your company is interested, simply sign up below outlining the internship opportunities you can provide.
