As Constructing a Brighter Future (CBF) enters its second year of operation, we are proud to showcase the incredible progress made through this transformative program. This video, created by the Oregon Workforce Partnership, highlights the collaborative efforts and the positive changes throughout CBF’s first tear. Focused on alleviating homelessness, CBF not only delivers transitional shelters but also serves as a transformative workforce initiative, exposing young individuals to diverse career opportunities within the construction trades. As we step into the 2023-2024 school year, CBF sets forth ambitious goals to broaden its impact across Lane County.
2023 – 2024 School Year Goals:
- Number of shelters to be completed and delivered to local housing sites: 16
- Number of estimated Lane County schools participating: 19
- Coordinate classroom CTE mentorships with the Lane County Construction-Aggregate sector industry professionals to assist with CBF project builds.
- Focus on rural expansion for site development of CBF model. Work with rural leaders to identify community build project needs.
As Constructing a Brighter Future embarks on its second year, the outlined goals for the 2023-2024 school year underscore a commitment to holistic community development. By constructing shelters and delivering construction trades exposure, CBF exemplifies the transformative power of collaboration, education, and hands-on experience. The impact of this initiative extends far beyond the completion of physical structures; it lays the foundation for a brighter and more sustainable future for Lane County.
