Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan) is pleased toannounce its partnership with Quincy Public Schools, for its sponsorship of “Trades Beyond the Bell,” an after school workforce training program. “Trades Beyond the Bell” is a Callahan sponsored program that came to fruition through the Quincy School ~ Community Partnership (QSCP), a collaboration between Quincy Public Schools, individuals, organizations, and the business community. The program is designed to support high school students by providing valuable training opportunities and connections to real world employment opportunities in the construction field.
For Trades Beyond the Bell, Callahan collaborated with Quincy Public Schools Career Vocational and Technical Education (CVTE) Program to offer students the opportunity to earn their required shop hours, experience hands-on engagement, gain technical skills, and improve safety awareness. A President’s Path Partner of the QSCP, Callahan is providing direct financial support to the Quincy School ~ Community Partnership to fund initiatives such as teacher mini-grants and purchasing state-of-the-art tools and technology.
“This project is part of Callahan’s greater commitment to giving back to the community,” says Callahan President Patrick Callahan. “The Trades Beyond the Bell Program is significant in shaping the incoming workforce and providing students within the local community with valuable life skills that they can use and turn into well-paying careers beyond high school.”
Career Vocational and Technical Education programs are a crucial element to the United States work force. According to the Association for Career & Technical Education, “Three million workers will be needed for the nation’s infrastructure in the next decade, including designing, building and operating transportation, housing, utilities, and telecommunications.” Not only does offering programs such as “Trades Beyond the Bell” provide guidance and opportunity for young individuals, but it also helps to fill vacancies in the job market.
“Quincy High School Career Vocational and Technical Education Program is thrilled to partner with Callahan to foster the continued development of our students,” says Keith Segalla, Executive Director of Career Vocational and Technical Education for Quincy Public Schools. “Trades Beyond the Bell is an invaluable opportunity for students to grow and gain real-world working experience.”
