In a continuing effort to grow our future building trades’ workforce, the Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation and the Harrisburg School District are excited to bring the Home Builders Academy to the Harrisburg High School campus.

In the new Home Builders Academy building, students will learn the basic skills needed to construct a home, and once the home is moved to its new location, students can further pursue the finishing specialties, such as electrical, drywall, insulation and HVAC. Not only will the Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation be the lead investor of the new building, but industry leaders will also be coming into the classroom to provide industry expertise.

The Home Builders Academy broke ground during the groundbreaking ceremony on July 22, 2019. Construction is planned to be completed during the Fall of 2019. Students from area schools will be given the opportunity to enroll in the program which begins Fall 2019.

“We are excited to support this new partnership with the Harrisburg School District to help develop a future skilled workforce and meet the home building needs of our community,” said Tom DeHaven, Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation Chair.
