Student Program

In an effort to increase the skilled construction labor force and to provide economic and educational opportunities for students, The Tri-Cities Branch of AGC works closely with students in our Student Program. 
 
Each year, Tri-Cities AGC sets aside funds to assist our Student Chapter. Activities that have qualified for this grant include the purchase of specific educational materials, such as computer software or hardware. We also financially assist students with their travel expenses to various educational seminars and to the AGC of America Annual Convention.
 
We are invested in our young people!
 

AGC of Tennessee Tri-Cities Branch sponsors the following programs:

East Tennessee State University Student Chapter of the Construction Technology Department

Students in this program join us for our quarterly general membership dinner meetings. The students also assist with various projects throughout the year. Many of the graduates from this department become employees of our general contractor members.

The Tennessee School-to-Work Program in Commercial Construction in a partnership agreement with East Tennessee State University, Bristol Tennessee High School, and Sullivan North High School

This program is endorsed by the Tennessee Department of Education and the Tennessee Department of Labor. The emphasis of the curriculum is to allow high school graduates to immediately join the construction workforce or provide them a background to pursue a post-secondary education in a construction field.
