ABC Heart of America is excited to host an Introduction to Construction Careers program for the Homeschool Community.
We believe that every student should have the chance to explore the incredible opportunities that the construction field has to offer. Over this 6-week homeschool program, students will meet at our Kansas City Training Facility for 2 hours every Tuesday. They will learn key concepts and gain introductory knowledge of the construction trades. Through multiple hands-on activities and demonstrations, students will have the opportunity to use some of the tools and materials involved in each presented trade. Each session will be prepared by industry experts to ensure students learn about the exciting world of construction careers while having fun in the process.
