The Construction Trades Sampler is a 14-week

All trades covered within the trade sampler will
build skill sets. Students will gain insights to

development, encouraging design, planning, the
production, and evaluation of various construction
techniques, learn theoretical knowledge and apply
tangible skills to assist their understanding and
appreciation for trades while completing a
construction project in the community. Upon

will have greater opportunity for acceptance into
trades schools' pre-apprenticeship programs.

The YETS program will be broken into sections,
