NDSCS Career Workforce Academy

The shortage of skilled labor is one of the most critical problems our industry faces today. We are proud to support and be part of an exciting solution that benefits not only our industry members, but also provides satisfying and rewarding careers for generations to come.

North Dakota State College of Science’s Career Workforce Academy allows students to enter the workforce sooner, with technical education certificates and skills. The trades will be promoted to grades K-14 on a continuous basis.

Home Builders Care of Fargo-Moorhead Foundation and Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead made a combined pledge of $200,000 toward the development of the Career Workforce Academy. Our goal and commitment is to raise $1 million.
