Al. Neyer Sponsors Skilled Trades Summer Camp to Northern Kentucky High School Students

Al. Neyer is committed to growing the building industry and sharing more about construction with the younger generation. We are proud to partner with the Building Institute Association and NaviGo Career and College Prep to produce learning opportunities for high school students who are interested in learning more about construction trades.

During this construction camp, Al. Neyer Project Engineer Dante Jones and Director of Field Operations Paul Caudill presented our recently completed 1.4 MSF two-building project, Runway Logistics, and demonstrated how the different trade teams worked together with the same goal in mind – to produce a project each person was proud to be a part of.

SKILLED TRADES SUMMER CAMP OFFERS WORKED-BASED TRAINING TO NORTHERN KENTUCKY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

Forty high school students from Northern Kentucky completed the first Skilled Trades Camp offered by The Building Industry Association of Northern Kentucky (BIA-NKY) and NaviGo Career and College Prep.

Students engaged in work-based learning activities ranging from carpentry and blueprint reading to electrical, plumbing, masonry, and construction. The goal was to expose students to incredible careers in our region, but also to give them hands-on experience in the trades.

“I was floored by the level of participation these kids brought to camp every single day,” said Vicki Berling, director of Professional Development at the BIA-NKY. “I am excited about the future for the building industry with so many talented young people looking at careers in the skilled trades.”

Camp applications opened in March with anticipation of hosting 10-15 students in grades 9th through 12th, but with more than 80 applicants, organizers shifted gears. Life Learning Center in Covington agreed to host the camp, and organizers split the day camp into two half day sessions to support more students during the first week of June.

“To see that level of interest in the skilled trades told us we needed to increase our capacity,” said Stephanie Layton, Operations Director with NaviGo. “NaviGo works hard to make sure students have as much exposure to in-demand careers as possible before they graduate and our business partners were just as excited as we were to share what’s possible in the field of skilled trades.”
