Parents, Teachers and Counselors

An important part of the Construct Tomorrow mission is to connect with, educate, and excite parents, teachers and school counselors who interact with students on a daily basis. We strive to be the first resource for and are always happy to help answer follow-up questions from students and their parents.

Construct Tomorrow Student Events

Construct Tomorrow hosts up to nine student events over the course of the school year across the state of Minnesota. Our events light a spark in students and encourage them to learn more about apprenticeship education in the construction and building trades. Our Student Events are loud and active and fun.

Our trades education partners offer creative ways to get students involved. The carpenters hold speed-nailing events. The iron workers set up an I-beam five feet off the ground and challenge students to walk across it. The welders have virtual-reality welding.

Students look forward to our events and many come back a second or third time. Construct Tomorrow is optimistically planning for a return to our Student Events in the fall of 2021. 

Apprenticeship Trades Education Presentation for the Burnsville Parent Forum and Resource Fair

Over the past several months, Construct Tomorrow has worked to strengthen our connection with parents, educators, and community influencers. Our goal is to help people better understand what an apprenticeship education entails and to highlight the outstanding benefits of apprenticeships.

 

Recently, Construct Tomorrow Executive Director Tim Busse presented during the Burnsville Parent Forum and Resource Fair. Tim has also spoken with Rotary Clubs, community groups, and at career fairs about apprenticeship trades education. Let us know if you're interested in having Tim speak to your group.
