ABOUT US

Establishing Work-Based Learning Education Programs in Colorado High Schools

OUR MISSION

To partner with entities that provide educational courses focused on the construction industry to promote the benefits of career opportunities to students, parents, influencers, and educators as well as develop effective job-placement platforms to place students in the construction industry.

FOUNDED IN 2015

The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs (CSHBA) and The Associated General Contractors of Colorado (AGC-C) partnered with leading regional educators to address the workforce shortage and dropout rates in El Paso County, and eventually, around the state by putting skilled vocational education back in high schools through Careers in Construction. In 2019, CICC expanded the program statewide to school districts spanning the Front Range.

THE PROGRAM

The Careers in Construction program is supported in the Metro Denver region by the AGC through its Construction Education Foundation (CEF), while the program is supported in Southern Colorado by CICC.

Each region is supported by local educational allies and funded by voluntary donations of capital and materials. When a community invests in the future workforce through CICC, their contribution stays in the community.
