“SkillsUSA salutes The Swinerton Foundation for this partnership, which includes support for our workforce development events for middle-school, high-school and college/postsecondary students enrolled in public career and technical education programs,” says SkillsUSA’s executive director, Chelle Travis. “SkillsUSA lifts up and recognizes students and provides much-needed assistance for their teachers to ensure America has a future skilled workforce. We could not deliver our mission without this crucial partner support.”
“The Swinerton Foundation is deeply aware of the shortage of a skilled construction workforce and the need for workforce development. We are excited to partner with SkillsUSA and Swinerton employees, who will be volunteering their time across the country to provide individuals with the tools they need, improving their opportunity to obtain living-wage jobs in an industry that is part of our DNA,” said Lori Dunn-Guion, President of The Swinerton Foundation.
