Construction Trades Building Project

  • The Area 18 Construction Trades Program at Bellmont High School is comprised of Junior and Senior level students that take part in a NCCER-certified, vocational project-based learning experience. Students participating in the program are led by a construction industry-specific instructor (and, in many cases, supported by certified, area trade professionals such as electricians, plumbers) to train for and gain valuable construction-based skills to prepare them for a career in the construction industry, post graduation. 

    Through the training program, students gain a deeper understanding of the construction industry and the various careers within. 

    To make this opportunity available to students, Bellmont High School is seeking an individual/individuals with a desire to build a new home or a significant structural addition that may be willing to consider our Construction Trade students to complete the project. The project recipient will receive labor services at a much reduced cost in exchange for the services. If this sounds like you, or you know of someone interested, we are currently accepting applications for upcoming projects. 

    To apply, please download and complete the following Building Trades Construction Application or complete an Online Application for review. Mailed applications may be directed to:
