Introducing an exciting new opportunity for local middle school students! Balfour Beatty, in joint venture with Holt Brothers, is partnering with Healthcare Foundation of Wilson and the Wilson Family YMCA to create a Construction Academy after school program for middle school students.
The Middle School After School (MSAS) Construction Academy program will consist of an 18-month curriculum for middle school students that will explore the construction industry alongside Balfour Beatty and Holt Brothers team members. Students will have the opportunity to learn from industry-leading experts about careers in construction and career readiness, resume writing and interview skills, and the importance of teamwork and community engagement. Students will also learn about construction operations, innovation and technology through building their own mock construction projects, flying drones, playing engineering games, participating in virtual and in-person job walks and more.
