Name: Construction Job Shadow Day
Date: February 26, 2019
Time: 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM EST
Event Description:
On behalf of the Building Industry Association of Central SC and Midlands Education and Business Alliance, we would like to invite your organization to participate in our industry-wide job shadowing event for construction.  This event, scheduled for Tuesday, February 26, 2019, will be offered to students interested in the construction career field such as masonry, carpentry, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, mechanical engineering, architecture, project management, etc.

Participating students will be at least 16 years of age and a sophomore in high school, who have expressed an interest in learning more about the construction industry.  Students will provide their own transportation.  For liability purposes, students are covered by school district insurance policies while they participate in extended learning opportunities during the school day.  Job shadow experiences should last at least 3 hours and as long as the school day, 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

The purpose of this job shadow is to provide students with an interest in construction careers, the opportunity to observe and engage in the industry first hand.  We understand that students may not actually visit a construction site, but they should be exposed to the industry through this experience as much as possible. 
If your organization is interested in hosting at least one student, please visit the following link and complete the registration as soon as possible: https://app.etapestry.com/onlineforms/MidlandsEducationBusinessAlli/webinars.html

Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email.  Job shadow assignments will be announced via e-mail by Wednesday, February 20, 2019.  MEBA and the BIA coordinate these extended learning opportunities and place students on a first come, first serve bases, taking into consideration their regional location and area of interest.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Samantha Turner with Midlands Education and Business Alliance at sturner@mebasc.com, (803) 422-9856, or Earl McLeod with the BIA of Central SC at earl@columbiabuilders.com, (803) 256-6238.
