During the months of March, April and May 2022, NTMA and Edge Factor are partnering together to equip our members – as well as educators, and industry workforce leaders across the country – with high impact tools to showcase training and career pathways in the skilled trades.
Edge Factor’s newest Toolkit for the Spring is themed around “Diversity in Skilled Trades”. Our goal is to engage students and job-seekers, reach parents, and connect businesses and schools to share the message that the skilled trades provide rewarding career opportunities for every community member.
“People need hope. Students, job-seekers, immigrants, and families are looking to the future asking themselves, “What comes next?” Sharing the videos and resources in this toolkit will undoubtedly change lives, as we open people’s eyes to career opportunities that will enable them to enjoy the work they do, support themselves and their families, and strengthen their community,” said Larissa Hofman, Vice President of Edge Factor.
“Careers in skilled trades provide people with stable jobs that are always needed – they are always in high demand! We are proud to present this Diversity in Skilled Trades toolkit in partnership with NTMA. We are thankful for their commitment to spreading hope and providing tangible workforce development solutions. We know this toolkit will have a far reaching impact on people’s lives, on companies that are looking for new team members, and across North America as the skilled trades fuel economic growth.”
