We partner with our clients, consultants, suppliers and subcontractors in the communities in which we operate. Just like them, CCDI is dedicated to St. Louis and its construction workforce. This program would not be possible without our partnerships with local companies. If your company is interested in taking students for job shadowing, summer interns or full-time hires, contact CCDI.
