OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG WOMEN
Currently women are only 8% of the workforce in construction. With huge projects on the horizon and huge workforce shortages, there is tremendous opportunity right now. We owe it to our young women to let them know that they have options and choices. After the USDOT Career Days, one young woman said that she was afraid she was going to just struggle to get by and that there were no ways out for someone like her. She is now working on a construction site – with hope for the future and the largest paychecks she has ever gotten.
The HOYA Foundation currently has four scholarships available. Applications are due by March 23. Click here for applications.
