We are thrilled to be celebrating the 5th Annual Residential Construction Career Day which will be held on Wednesday October 6,2022 at the Cape Cod Fairgrounds. Residential Construction Career Day (RCCD) provides students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to explore the construction industry through a series of interactive activities, linking students with employers and STEM careers.
Students will have the opportunity to learn more about the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod’s (HBRACC) Apprenticeship Program, and STEM career paths within Engineering, Advanced Manufacturing and Green Building.
Construction is one of the leading employment sectors within the region, leading to full-time, year-round, self-sufficient employment. The construction industry is facing a severe shortage of talent, making an event like RCCD critical in raising awareness to students and educators about the career pathway available to students within this sector.
The Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod and the MassHire – Cape & Islands Workforce Board will continue to work together to ensure that economic vitality of our region is sustained in part through the growth of this industry.
As we celebrate our 5th Anniversary of RCCD, we are excited to announce several changes to the event, which we feel will help enhance the overall experience. We feel strongly that this is not a day off for students, but rather the opportunity to provide an alternative learning environment one in which focuses on career exploration.
