Nevada Builders Alliance partners with U.S. Army
July 13, 2017
Nevada Builders Alliance—the largest statewide professional membership based organization in the construction industry—announces first statewide partnership with the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program. A signing ceremony to mark the occasion takes place at noon on Monday, July 17 at Rancharrah, 6001 Talbot Lane, Reno, Nev.
The PaYS program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help young men and women gain important education and training in an employment field while simultaneously serving their country. PaYS is an enlistment option for future soldiers and ROTC cadets to prepare for possible employment after active duty.
"Our hope for this partnership is to encourage Nevada's youth to pursue a career in the construction industry," said Nevada Builders Alliance CEO Aaron West. "As an organization, we strive to promote the highest standards in construction education. We look forward to working with the young men and women to educate and train Nevada's future workforce."
Through this partnership, Nevada Builders Alliance will help young veterans who are looking towards a career in the construction industry by providing introductions and job interviews upon completion of their service.
Comprised of 750 companies in the construction industry and affiliated sectors statewide, Nevada Builders Alliance actively works with area schools, community agencies, veterans and military groups to promote a skilled workforce to spur economic development.
Along with other industry partners, including the Nevada Construction Collaborative (NCC) and the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN), Nevada Builders Alliance launched the BuildNV.org platform to provide career information and resources for anyone considering a career in the construction industry.
