The Construction Careers Handbook: How to Build Coalitions and Win Arguments That Create Career Pathways for Low Income People and Lift Up Construction Industry Jobs

The Partnership for Working Families

This manual is designed to provide insight into all the elements of a construction careers approach. Winning and implementing effective construction careers programs requires an understanding of the industry, a commitment to a policy model that can work in your region, and strong relationships between building trades and community leaders, who work together to win new allies and champion effective public policy. No construction careers campaign starts out with all of these resources in place. This handbook is designed to give you a basic understanding of each of these critical areas of work, and to help you figure out where to start.
