Careers in Construction (CIC), established in 2015 by the Colorado Springs Housing & Building Association (CSHBA) and The Associated General Contractors-Colorado (AGC-C), is addressing the workforce shortage and dropout rates in El Paso County by putting skilled vocational education back in high schools. Due to tremendous program growth, in 2019, Careers in Construction Colorado was formed, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which now serves as the governing entity of the CIC program.
The CIC program is working to provide pathways to:
- Personal Pride and Confidence
- Professional Life Skills
