The North Coast Builders Industry Association is all about growing our community in Northeast Ohio. One way that we are able to help with this is through our partnership with the Lorain County Joint Vocational School (JVS).

JVS has a variety of programs where kids can learn all types of trades that will prepare them for their future careers. They focus on workforce development in many different industries, including trades such as carpentry, masonry, electrical, HVAC, and much more.

JVS at the Home Show

JVS has participated in the last years of the NCBIA Home Show, which is a great opportunity for the students to showcase and sell their work. It is also the perfect chance for them to network and expand their experiences.

The first year JVS attended the Home Show, one of our display frames broke, and without hesitation, the students were able to fix it in seconds! It was amazing to see them in action, using the skills they learn in their programs. 

Exciting Plans for Next Summer

We are incredibly excited about our plans with JVS for next summer, but we can’t tell you now! So be sure to keep an eye out for news from JVS and NCBIA to see what it is all about!
