Build Your Future Indiana

Construction businesses are struggling to fill skilled labor positions. Many careers in the home building industry pay well, offer opportunities for advancement, and don’t require a college degree. Unfortunately, many high school students don’t know about all of the jobs that are directly related to building a home, let alone the opportunities for growth and success they offer.

Indiana Builders Association has partnered with Build Your Future Indiana to close the skills gap by recruiting the next generation of craft professionals.

Build Your Future Indiana is a unique collaboration of employers, state agencies and industry associations to encourage Indiana residents to learn about construction craft careers and training opportunities now emerging in our state, and to qualify for and get jobs in these high-demand occupations.


Program Goals:

  1. Shift the public’s negative perception of careers in the construction industry to reflect the wide range of professional opportunities available.
  2. Make career and technical education a priority in secondary schools.
  3. Providing a path from ambition to training, job placement, development and advancements as a craft professional.
