Working together across organi- zation lines, we formed a committee of more than 30 professionals who spanned all demographics and profes- sions within the built environment. ese volunteers dedicated their time and shared their knowledge, and each person was devoted to the camp's success. Duties ranged from devel- oping the curriculum and soliciting sponsors to managing social media and executing the work throughout week. e energy and excitement that the girls brought to camp was contagious, inspiring everyone to work harder to ensure their success. Following the excitement of our first year, we are developing plans for our second year of camp with modules for advanced training for returning or experienced campers. The Future Is Calling How does a construction camp like this help the coatings industry? e gradu- ates of the Let's Build! program become a new stream of prospective employees, willing and interested in joining the industry. ey're more educated about what the industry might entail and whether or not it could be something that is of interest. From installers to manufacturers, these young people may be the future of our industry, and this introduction to construction shows them the benefits they can experience in the industry. e skills gap is not going to be eliminated overnight — not by one person or one initiative. However, by working together as an industry and coming up with several solutions, we can promote the careers found within and provide the training needed to accomplish them. You're full of knowledge from your experiences in the field. Help ensure that your intelligence is shared with future generations, and inspire them to build something bigger than themselves.
