Perception of the building industry is important to the overall health of the industry. What if young people were taught that the trades can offer a great salary? That they’re cutting-edge, exciting, and cool? Our guest, Tim Minton talks about how the Be Pro Be Proud program is spreading across the country. Its goal is to educate youth about the trades, change the perception of these careers, build excitement through technology, and solve the critical issue of a nationwide talent shortage in these fields. Through a virtual reality experience, kids can try their hand at a trade and learn how much it would pay them. And the benefits are already being seen in a rise in the percentage of young people who participate in the program joining a trade afterward. Learn about the unique solutions being offered to encourage kids to join the industry, and how you can bring it to your area.
