Purpose

We seek to develop an educated, adaptable, and competitive home building industry that will meet the needs of skilled trades by preparing future NWAHBA leaders.

The NWAHBA Future Builders program is dedicated to enriching the educational experiences of students by offering them first-hand exposure to the building industry through NWAHBA membership, educational programming, and connections to builders. Educators and NWAHBA members come together to empower students with a real-world understanding of trade skills, equipping them for career success in the residential construction industry. This relationship helps educators ground their curriculum in the needs of real businesses and leads students to obtain skills that will be highly valued in the job market.

For information regarding the NWA Future Builders, educational opportunities, or participation in an event, please contact our office: 479.751.6688.
