Why building trades at Pagosa Springs High School?
Help us build a better future for Pagosa youth
Contact us today for more information on the future and needs of The Building Trades and Technology program at Pagosa Springs High School
The Pagosa Area Builders Advisory Committee, an integral part of Build Pagosa, is working with the Archuleta School District to develop a vocational program to teach high school students the skills needed to work in, and ultimately pursue a career in the building trades industry. PABAC is also working to develop an internship program that will place students with local contractors during the summer months in order to help them gain real-world experience and on-the-job training.
Expanding the community’s vocational program for both students and adults requires classroom space. A building has been purchased and the committee is working to remodel the structure in order to provide space for the current Building Trades and Technology I course. It has also been shown through a full waiting list that there is interest in continuing the trades courses with advanced level teaching. To do so requires resources and classroom space.
You can help PABAC by getting involved. Join us at our weekly meetings, Wednesday at 3:00 pm at the Town Hall.
