AVB Inspires Future Leaders

AVB had the opportunity to visit the Kalamazoo Public Schools Washington Writer’s Academy, at their annual Promising Futures Career Fair. We had the chance to speak with over 100 students and their families about working in construction. We were also able to tour a Western Michigan University Timber Design Engineering class through a few of our framed condos. The thirteen students were able to see how the theories in their class applied to the construction of a real home. We love to get involved with the next generation!
