Partner Spotlight: GO BUILD Alabama

At this year’s JLDC, more than 5,400 members from Alabama’s 9 CTE+CTSO programs and organizations will gather to Multiply their Leadership. To help ensure their time in Birmingham is as impactful as possible, AL JLDC is proud to be continuing our partnership with GO BUILD Alabama!

GO BUILD Alabama aims to prepare Alabama’s future workforce and expose JLDC attendees to possible careers in Alabama’s thriving construction industry.

Alabama’s construction industry is getting older and smaller, despite growth projections of 19% through 2018. For every four tradesmen that leave the industry, only one is currently replacing them. This has created a significant opportunity for competitive pay without the worry of student loans.

If you’re attending JLDC this year, make sure to stop by GO BUILD Alabama’s exhibit space during the Career Showcase + Expo and thank them for their continued support of Alabama JLDC!

2017 Tell Your Story Video Challenge

Your organization is full of stories to tell and the Alabama CTE Leadership Council want to hear them! Back by popular demand is the Tell Your Story Video Challenge, where you’ll have the chance to get creative and show what your organization is all about!

The idea is simple: bring together your fellow chapter members to create a video that highlights what makes your chapter unique. You might choose to focus on why other students should join or maybe you’ll explore the ways your organization has made a difference in your life. You could discuss how your organization is helping you reach your career goals or what your teacher is doing to take your CTE+CTSO experience to the next level. Whichever story you decide to tell, have fun with it! You just might see your video played in front of nearly 6,000 students, educators, and workforce developers at JLDC!

The winning video will receive $500 for their local chapter, courtesy of the Alabama CTE Leadership Council.

Click here to learn more and make sure to submit by October 6 to be eligible. We can’t wait to see how you Tell Your Story!
