Kinsley Construction Inc. is holding a “School-to-Work” program for high school students interested in a career in construction trades.
The York-based company said the event on April 21 and 22 is an informational program about opportunities for students to move directly from high school to careers in the construction industry.
Students will progress through 12 stations, each led by a Kinsley professional. Hands-on demonstrations will allow students to see what the company does and how they do it, put their hands on the equipment and tools, and have face-to-face conversations with people who do the work and do the hiring, the company said.
Kinsley expects about 150 high school juniors, seniors and educators from nine York, Adams and Cumberland county schools to participate in 12 stations hosted by Kinsley employees in site, highway & bridges, utilities, building, industrial, materials, and safety at its facility at 1110 E. Princess St. York.
Parents and students are realizing that college isn’t the right choice for everyone, the company said. The need for skilled labor and tradespeople is high, and these lifelong careers can start free of student debt.
