Building Up the Next Generation

A group of middle schoolers is getting a unique opportunity to get a head start in the construction industry. TRF Camp Build is happening this week in Phoenix to prepare the next generation of workers to boost our state's economy. So during this weeklong camp, students get professional training, hands-on practice with everything from plumbing, woodworking, electrical, and a lot more. Organizers say this training comes at a pretty critical time with the industry going through a period of transition. President Jolsna Thomas stated "In the construction industry, we currently have a lot of people retiring and we need to make sure the seats are filled with young, bright people that are excited about building." This is the second year TRF Camp Build has been in Arizona. This year they have about 30 campers, almost double the amount from last year.
