ROCHESTER, Minn.- It can be hard for high schoolers to decide what they should do after graduation. The Southeastern Minnesota Building & Construction Trades Council is teaming up with RCTC to show high school students they don't have to attend college to have a career.
At Century High School, students were able to get a first hand look at skills like carpentry and welding.
Nate O'Reilly is the president of the Construction Trades Council and says not every student can afford to go to college.
“There’s still a need, a great demand actually for skilled tradesmen to build the buildings and build the bridges and build our infrastructure around us,” Said O’Reilly.
If students at the event were 17 or older they can apply for an apprenticeship with some of the organizations, Click here.
