Building 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 tradesmen. 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 tradesmen to pursue further education.

High school career education programs such as the FHS Building Trades courses not only provide students with the opportunity to gain on-the-job training, but also are designed to address the nationwide labor shortage affecting the entire U.S. building industry. The Department of Labor reports that for every five skilled tradesmen that retire, only one will enter the workforce.

Couple the shortage of labor with the remarkable community growth in the Central Texas Hill Country, and you’ve got a high-demand construction job market.

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