RiverWild Introduces Thousands of Middle Schoolers to Construction at 2022 JoCo Works

Oct 19, 2022

What better way to spend the end of the week than hanging out with a few thousand middle school students?

Our RiverWild team was honored to participate in JoCo Works, an industry-led event for 8th grade students to inspire what’s possible for the future workforce. This in-person career exploration event was set up at Johnston Community College, where over 3,000 young men and women interacted with various industries.

We had a blast talking about the endless possibilities in a construction career, and the impact of choosing the right community for employment. From equipment testing, to prize wheel spinning, to countless questions answered (if you know, you know!) these students explored it all with our crew.
