  • PWB Activity Book

    When you ask young children what they want to be when they grow up, the scope of answers is enormous!  They pick from the careers they’ve seen and thought were exciting and important:  teacher, builder, doctor, garbage collector, firefighter, astronaut…the list is as endless as their potential! 
    October was Careers in Construction Month, and the Central PA PWB Council created an activity book to keep those childhood dreams alive!  While literally keeping roofs over people’s heads as builders, architects, electricians, engineers, plumbers, bankers, roofers, and more, these professions are ALL rewarding careers with bright futures.
    The average house takes over 20 different subcontractors to complete, each with a different responsibility.  Excavators, plumbers, framers, painters – everyone has a different role to play when a piece of land becomes a home. This activity book highlights some of these crucial trades.  We hope you have fun finding out more about the work that goes into building a new home!  View the "Dream Home Activity Book".
