Building and construction trades field trip for Mt. Diablo Unified high school counselors and college/career advisors 

High school teams hit the road to meet with local building trade organizations to explore opportunities for career education partnerships

 

WHAT:  About two dozen Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) high school Counselors, College and Career Advisors, and Work-based Learning Coordinators have been invited by the Contra Costa Building and Construction Trades Council to visit some building trades centers to learn more about construction and building trade career opportunities for high school graduates.

 

Representatives from the Council recently met with MDUSD’s Career Pathway Advisory Committee, and offered to host the field trip as a way for school advisors to learn more about entry-level opportunities, apprenticeship programs, and journeyperson training. Data from the California Department of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) indicate that prevailing wages for apprentices in Contra Costa County, working in the skilled trades, start at close to $30 for the hourly basic rate.

 

WHERE/WHEN:  MDUSD educators will meet at Ygnacio Valley High School, 755 Oak Grove Rd., Concord, to board a bus for the field trip taking them to three locations:
