| October 12, 2017

Quincy, MA  – Callahan Construction Managers of Bridgewater has completed the latest installment of its constructing communities initiative with Quincy High School through a co-op work program for select high school graduates.

Students participate in the co-op work program

As part of Quincy High School’s President’s Pathway initiative, Callahan educated a group of 30 senior-level students throughout the school year about the engineering and construction industry through job shadowing, active site visits and hands-on interaction.

Four classes at Quincy High School participated in the student program—Carpentry, Electrical Tech, Plumbing Technology and Metal Fabrication

Select dedicated students from the program were invited to join the team for a summer co-op, which provided students with extensive opportunities to apply skills on-site and experience the various stages of construction first-hand.

The co-op helped these ambitious students dive deeper into the construction industry, form mentorships and build a foundation of real world experience. Each day brought new challenges, lessons and opportunities for growth. Callahan collaborated with Hines, the developer of Meriel Marina Bay, and The John Flatley Company, the developer of Crown Colony, to extend the opportunity to local students in the Quincy community.

Keith Segalla, executive director of Career and Technical Education for Quincy Public Schools., said,“….. As a result of this co-op, one of our students hopes to pursue a career in underwater welding, while another student aspires to open a carpentry business. Our students have completed this program excited about their futures, and that’s priceless.”
