District Council 50 continues to make great strides in promoting IUPAT career opportunities to young people in their community. From October 27-28, 2016, the training department of District Council 50 participated in the Hawaii Construction Career Days (HICCD) event at Aloha Stadium. Last year’s Construction Career Days event was significant as it marked the 10th anniversary since its inception and also coincided with the first Hawaii Apprenticeship Week.
Over 1,500 high school students from all over the state attended the event, including a select group of students who travelled from Kauai and Maui. Students who were unsure of what to do after graduating high school were educated on the great career opportunities in the IUPAT and the building trades, including earning great wages and benefits while working and attending apprenticeship classes. The IUPAT thanks District Council 50 for participating in the HICCD and continuing to inform young people of the many career opportunities our organization offers.
