Construction Career Days
The Willamette Valley Construction Career Day is an annual event that the Salem NAWIC Chapter has organized and hosted since 2003. During the event, over 600 high school students in the Willamette Valley are given the opportunity to receive hands-on exposure to a myriad of potential career paths in the construction industry. This event is divided into three informational areas:
Heavy Equipment—students are able to operate heavy equipment;
Hands-On Activities—students can participate in various hands-on activities, including framing, carpentry, glass cutting, masonry, and many others; and
Informational—local educational programs and industry associations will be handing out information about their programs and services to youth that might be interested in the industry.
