Join us on Saturday, May 1st for Construction Kids Discovery & Awareness Day at Lexington Technology Center (in front of Lex High School)!
This is an educational community event that will provide children with a hands on opportunity to see and touch heavy machinery, and meet the people who build and maintain our community. Attendees will be able to explore vehicles like a dump truck, excavator, crane and South Carolina’s own Be Pro Be Proud 18-wheeler with hands on simulators!
For the older youth and parents we are pleased to have the SC Be Pro Be Proud Workforce Workshop on hand for this event! The best opportunity to reach those who will make up the skilled workforce of the future is to bring the opportunity to them. Our mobile unit, the Workforce Workshop, provides hands-on experience with skilled professions while showing the jobs in depth to a live audience.
The Workforce Workshop tour will feature a customized, interactive trailer loaded with information, skills challenges and more as it makes its way across South Carolina visiting companies, schools and community events. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT SC BE PRO BE PROUD
