The Ambassador Program was created to provide more targeted and strategic outreach for the construction industry. The Construction Center of Excellence is continually building the number of volunteers to attend outreach events and share the great career opportunities in the construction industry. The goal is to have capacity for younger, diverse stewards of the crafts available to speak to high school classes, career fairs, veterans events, women events and more. This is also a great professional development and growth opportunity!
