The MCEF Counselors’ Workshop is designed for K-12 Counselors to explore hands-on building activities with other Counselors and over the course of the day Counselors will build a small structure from start to finish. Participants will explore building design, architectural plan reading, measuring, sawing, hammering, framing wall systems, framing roofing systems, and much more, all under the direction of professional contractors. Skills observed and experienced at the MCEF Counselors’ Workshop are taught in Mississippi high school and community college career and technical (CTE) programs.
The Workshop experience will lead to Counselor’s increased knowledge about CTE programs and increase student enrollment in high school CTE programs.
The MCEF Counselors’ Workshop is sponsored by the Mississippi Construction and Education Foundation (MCEF) who is partnering with the Mississippi Department of Education and industry partners.
