Project Build MN: More Than Just a Website

Project Build Minnesota, the collaborative construction industry association effort to address the industry’s workforce challenge, has several key elements to the initiative.

First, Project Build has an aggressive outreach program to reach students, parents, faculty and educators through a speakers bureau and exhibiting at conferences and events. If you are willing to join the speakers bureau, contact Project Build Minnesota Executive Director Dennis Medo at dennis@projectbuildmn.org.

Second, Project Build is engaged in a multi-year, multi-channel marketing campaign to make all of those key audiences identified above aware of the great career opportunities and the career path in our industry. The more resources it has, the broader Project Build can drive its marketing campaign.

If you are willing to make a financial contribution of any size, please contact Medo or simply make a donation on the website ProjectBuildMN.org.

With both the outreach effort and the marketing campaign, all audiences are directed to a growing and powerful website and social pages, which serve as the hub for their next action. For example, if students wish to pursue certification or further education in the construction field, the Project Build Minnesota website has the first-ever comprehensive list of scholarships provided by partnering associations.

 

In addition, the site lists a wide array of trade training and post-secondary options. And for those seeking a job immediately, the site offers a well-stocked job board powered by the members of the various associations and industry firms.

In addition to the outreach program and marketing campaign, the nonprofit is seeking partnerships with organizations in the workforce development space as yet another tool to get out the word regarding our industry. The workforce shortages our industry is experiencing will not be solved quickly.

It will take a multiyear, multi-channel program and this is why Housing First Minnesota launched Project Build, along with the Minnesota Builders Exchange, Associated Builders and Contractors, and The Builders Group (TBG). Medo reports consistent growth in people hearing about Project Build and reaching out as media covers the effort, the marketing campaign grows and the outreach efforts expand. If you are interested in helping Project Build Minnesota succeed, there are several ways you can help.
