A Message from the Foundation’s Board of Directors


When the DC Students Construction Trades Foundation opened the Academy of Construction and Design in 2005, our public-private partnership brought skilled trades back to District schools and created the first new construction education classrooms in nearly four decades. From our initial discussions with school officials, we envisioned the Academy’s training curriculum would include professionally supervised building projects to help students gain skills and experience.

Over a decade of industry outreach and workforce training, we have helped CTE students achieve great things. If you have contributed to the Foundation’s efforts, you have touched the lives of many students. We are grateful for your generous support. Your continued involvement will allow us to multiply the powerful effect of mentoring. And, if you are getting acquainted with our mission and programs for the first time, will you join us? Help us teach students how to build a bright future in skilled careers.
