The Struggle is REAL… with Workforce Development

Build Your Future is Here to Help.


Build Your Future Indiana is a unique collaboration of employers, state agencies and industry associations. Our goal is to encourage Indiana residents to learn about construction craft careers and training opportunities now emerging in our state, and to qualify for and get jobs in these high-demand occupations.

Build Your Future aims to be the catalyst for recruiting the next generation of craft professionals. We provide a collaborative grassroots approach to construction workforce forecasting and development that includes recruitment, training, placement, retention, and image enhancement strategies.


Shift public perception about careers in the construction industry to reflect the wide range of professions available.

For five straight years, the skilled crafts have remained the toughest positions to fill globally. This is in spite of the industry’s upward mobility and high earning potential.

Make career education and awareness a priority in your community.

Build Your Future Indiana is working with school officials and educators to bring this program to schools so that students and their parents can learn that great career opportunities are achievable at all levels of education – from high school diploma, technical skills training and on-the-job experience, to associate and bachelor degree levels.

Provide a path from ambition, to training, to job placement as a craft professional.

Industries such as construction and manufacturing will provide nearly 8 million job openings, of which 2.7 million will require a post-secondary credential. (Pathways to Prosperity, Harvard Graduate School of Education)

Build Your Future Indiana provides valuable resources to help connect students, parents and teachers with information about career paths in the construction industry.
