The Go Build Georgia program is designed to educate young people on the value of learning a trade, dispel their misconceptions about the skilled trade industry and inspire them to consider building a career as a skilled tradesman. Through this public awareness effort, public relations and social media campaign, Go Build aims to provide better opportunities for craft tradesmen, more highly skilled employees for businesses and enhanced economic development for Georgia and the nation.
There are five industries of focus involved in the program: manufacturing, industrial construction, transportation, energy, and telecommunications. It is within these industries that Georgia is seeing career opportunities.
The Go Build Georgia website provides a one-stop resource for students, parents and educators alike to discover the many opportunities in the skilled trades. By accessing the Go Build Georgia website, students can begin building their career trajectory, discover new careers and opportunities in the skilled trades, and find the necessary training to pursue a career in these trades.
