6abc.com is spotlighting careers in construction by featuring an article about GBCA’s work promoting construction careers to middle and high school students in the Philadelphia region. The article features quotes from leaders and members of Philadelphia’s construction industry, including:

While construction fundamentally shapes our city and suburbs, careers in the industry often fly under the radar. The General Building Contractors Association (GBCA) – one of America’s oldest trade associations – is on a mission to change that with workforce development efforts and an array of partnerships designed to raise awareness among middle and high school students about the real, rewarding career opportunities in construction.
