Go Build is a 501(c)(3) that seeks to keep our workforce strong and steady – and that starts by inspiring young people to consider a career in the skilled trades. Go Build is a comprehensive workforce development initiative that seeks to address the current skills gap crisis by enhancing the image of the construction industry and informing young people, parents, educators and influencers, about opportunities in the trades.
