The Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Apprenticeship Training Center welcomes interested parties to tour our training facility, learn about our apprenticeship program and its respective career opportunities, and get hands-on. Try craft basics such as cutting, setting, and grouting tile, or spreading mortar, applying a head joint, and laying brick to a line.

On December 7, we set up a booth at the Construct Tomorrow event at the Heritage Center of Brooklyn Center. These events are the best way to spark interest in curious youth and provide a basic understanding of both apprenticeship and the type of work our crafts perform. 1700 high school students from schools around the area had the opportunity to have hands-on experiences with different union trades. A special thanks to our apprentice volunteers Alexis Kroska, Christian Schultz, and Tong Yang and to Rod Schmidt and Terry Wong for stopping by.

What is it?
Construct Tomorrow was founded in 2013 to provide high school students the opportunity to experience trade-work hands on and provide them with awareness of the amazing post-secondary career opportunities that come with being an apprentice.

What will you do?
You will share your experience as an apprentice, help at the hands-on demonstration stations, and answer questions that students may ask.
