The Construction Careers Pathway (CCP) Alliance is part of a collaborative effort to provide year-round construction career exploration opportunities for Minnesota youth. It is the intent of the CCP Alliance to provide work-based learning exposure starting in middle school and concluding with a career in the Minnesota construction industry. It also is the intent to have an outreach emphasis given to females and members of minority and immigrant groups who historically have been underrepresented in the construction industry.
To fulfill this effort, the Construction Careers Foundation (CCF) has engaged in strategic partnerships with the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Building and Construction Trades Councils, Apprenticeship Coordinators Association of MN, Construct Tomorrow and participating school districts. On behalf of this collaborative effort, CCF, comprised of contractors, their trade associations and labor leadership, pursue and receive funding to support these collaborative efforts. An overview of CCF and a list of alliance partnerships and funding sources is provided below.
