We're not your average non-profit. This non-profit is ran by the industries leading professionals, those with boots on the ground from 7:00AM to 5:00PM every day, working with our hands to make a living. Our community has found great success in the construction industry, and we want to make the career path known as an option for students at a middle or high school level.
Donating to Schools: We're thankful for our sponsors, Grip-Rite, Hammr, Diablo Tools, Olfa Cuts, Diamondback Toolbelts, Max Take-Offs, MattBangsWood and more for sponsoring us on this mission. Allowing us to donate packages to each school we work with, supplying them with proper PPE for students, nail guns, compressors, air hoses, materials and more. We want to improve the learning experience inside each classroom we work with, and allowing for a larger budget with better tools is the first step!
Industry Professional Visits: Remember the part where I said we aren't your average non-profit? We're the leaders in this industry, with a combined following of over 400,000 on social media. We're bringing along some close friends, industry professionals from all different trades, into the classes to explain the different trades in-depth. Pay grade, scope of work, how to follow that career path and join the industry. Along with this, we're going to put on demos for students to interact with to get hands-on and see if it's something they're interested in.
Our mission is to bring awareness to the skilled trades. We're showing students what it's like to be in the industry and allowing them to talk 1-on-1 with trades professionals who make a living in the trades. We want to see students taking interest in the trades, and that starts in the classrooms.
We're not coming in with suits and ties, talking statistics to students. Chances are there will still be mud on our boots, from leaving the jobsite the day before. This non-profit was founded by Matt Panella, a 24 year old third-generation carpenter with 9 years in the rough framing trade.
