PHBI has enjoyed partnering with builders, educators and industry stakeholders on a number of youth building programs. High school students get the opportunity to not only build homes, but ultimately gain exposure to the many trades and career paths associated with our industry. PHBI's hope is that through hands-on exposure to home building and seeing all the trades and suppliers involved in our industry that some of the students involved in these youth programs may choose careers in residential construction.

PHBI has sponsored these programs by providing a tuition waiver for Level 1 of the Residential Construction Site Manager (RCSM) - Academic program. Level 1 is all online and features state of the art 3D house modeling which allows the students to visualize the concepts that are being taught. Though this program was developed for site managers, it's a great introduction into the onsite construct process for students and introduces them to excavation and foundation, framing, exterior finishes, mechanical and interior finishes.
