Career vocational and technical education programs are vital to the United States work force. According to the Association for Career & Technical Education, “three million workers will be needed for the nation’s infrastructure in the next decade, including designing, building and operating transportation, housing, utilities, and telecommunications.” Not only does offering programs such as “Trades Beyond the Bell” provide guidance and opportunity for young individuals, but it also helps to fill vacancies in the job market.
