Thank you to Patrick Hanneken from North Tech High School on organizing this trip to the One Hundred jobsite in St. Louis. We are so glad CCDI could help provide educational site visits to some of St. Louis’ coolest projects! We even had the pleasure of running into one of our CCDI grads on the job who is successfully building his career with Wies Drywall. Thank you Dan Wies for believing in Darnell! We are so proud of him. And last, but not least.. thank you to the wonderful Jessica Harvey for leading our tour today!
CCDI is honored to be the recipient of Construction Forums 2020 Building Tomorrow: Workforce Development Organization Award! CCDI has grown tremendously over the past five years with the support of our partners and sponsors. Because of our supporters and partners, we are able to continue to build the foundation for change and help to develop our future workforce. We are very proud of this recognition.
Big shout out to Jessica Harvey for hosting our Construction Academy for January. Twenty-six high school students, eight alumnus and ten volunteers had the opportunity to learn about and tour one of St. Louis’ coolest new construction projects! Our CCDI Alum spoke to the younger students in the program about their journey to where they are at today and then engaged in a soft skills/career preparation lesson to get ready for our upcoming internship and hiring fairs! We are thrilled to see how many young people eager to learn more about our industry. They are a bright group who are ready to #buildthefoundationforchange. Thank you to all our CCDI sponsors who make these valuable opportunities possible for our students.
Please let us know if your company would be interested in hosting a field trip. We would be happy to help collaborate! #teamworkmakesthedreamwork

CCDI’s 1st Annual Trivia Night Fundraiser took place this past weekend at St. Ann Community Center. The purpose of this event was to recruit mentors for our new class of CCDI students, as well as meet some of the awesome kids we have in the program. Thank you to all the students and CCDI Fundraising and Marketing Committee members who volunteered their time to organize and run this fun and successful event. We look forward to making this a yearly tradition!
