Career & Trades Experience

Few things are more important than giving young people a path to a better future. This is why it is our greatest pleasure to bring this event to Arizona’s Southwest Community.

Trades turn the lights on, keep vehicles running and stock our shelves.

This year’s event will take place April 29th-April 30th from 9am-2pm at the Yuma County Fairgrounds. This 2-day event will focus on educating our current and future workforce of the fields of opportunities. They will learn about all the trades, from electrical, cosmetology, culinary, mechanics, law enforcement and many more! Everyone will have the opportunity to experience the trades with hands-on activities, learn about wages, and talk to the professionals all in one location. The first day will focus on engaging students in the trades and encouraging them to bring their parents for the second day!

If that wasn’t enough of an experience, participants will have the opportunity to compete with coworkers, family or close friends and really put their skills to the test in Yuma’s First Every Construction Trades Skills Competition!
