COMMUNITY IMPACT

The Hill Country Builders Association is proud of its members’ involvement in a number of charitable and community-impact driven activities. 

CONSTRUCTION TRADES PROGRAM

The HCBA is all about giving back to promote educational programs that provide quality training and on-the-job experience for our next generation of builders and tradespersons. 

Members of the Hill Country Builders Association work with local area high schools’ CTE Building Trades education programs to give students hands-on experience and on-the-job knowledge. HCBA fundraisers also raise funds for academic scholarship programs that enable our next generation of builders and trades professionals to pursue further education.

Since 2015, we’ve raised and awarded over $15,000 in scholarships for local youth pursuing careers and education in the construction industry.

CASA ÜBER ALLES

HCBA members have joined forces with local high school building trades programs where students work closely with local builders, trade partners and suppliers that serve as mentors while they earn school credit building fully functional tiny homes from the ground up.

We’re all about donating our time and helping to raise funds to elevate projects like this one. Fredericksburg High School has created a model program that high schools around the nation have started to implement.

The HCBA is currently working with local area high schools in Fredericksburg, Burnet and Comfort, and plans to implement similar career education programs at other high schools across Texas.
