The Endorsed Trade Program is a program developed by PBA, in collaboration with educators, local builders associations and other industry stakeholders, to provide technical school

 

graduates more credibility in the job market and provide builders with a highly skilled workforce.

PBA’s program is the ONLY program that offers comprehensive support for schools and develops relationships with students.

By requiring that curricula meet industry standards, ensuring that facilities are adequate for proper hands-on training, assisting schools in the development of home builder student chapters, facilitating local internships, and providing a process to ensure that students can connect with builders, PBA’s program accelerates the placement process for students to transition successfully into the workforce.

The Pennsylvania Foundation for Housing, Inc. was established by the Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA) in 2012 to support programs that ensure the growth and development of the home building industry through strengthening educational opportunities in residential building and related fields.

Led by a volunteer Board of Trustees, the Foundation is organized as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Administration, including program development and marketing of the Foundation is provided by staff of PBA. Fundraising is provided by non-staff volunteers and trustees. Foundation operations are conducted from the PBA offices in Harrisburg, PA.
