We connect youth in underrepresented communities with career opportunities in construction—from professional trades to college degree programs. Our communities are our partners. That’s why we devote our time, our energy, and our resources to efforts that support the areas where we operate and the people who live there. We’re working to build the future. We’re in it for the long haul.

Spotlight on Our Scholars

Roshon Sykes

CCDI celebrates the life of Roshon Sykes, Class of 2019. Roshon will forever be remembered as an ambitious, prepared, outstanding person who loved to be around kids and help others through leading by example. Although he was tragically taken from us all too soon, he left a lasting impression on those who knew him, worked with him, laughed with him, and dreamed with him of a bright future in our industry. In addition to being a member of the CCDI Class of 2019, Roshon was a member of the 2018 graduating class of Pattonville High School. One of the best and brightest, Roshon Sykes.
