Learn about Construction and more at Build My Future® STL!

Build My Future® STL first launched in the St. Louis area spring of 2022 and was a wild success! This construction career and industry showcase event includes hands-on exhibits and virtual reality simulations in architecture, construction, bricklaying, heavy equipment, tile laying, welding, plumbing, HVAC and much more.

The two-day event will again take place at the St. Charles Family Arena – Wednesday, April 30 and Thursday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Wednesday, April 30, the event will open to the general public from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. with the hope that interested students will invite their parents to visit with them and provide an opportunity for recent high school graduates still considering their next steps, or anyone considering a career change, to learn more about the trades in a fun, interactive environment. Last year, more than 1,000 high school students visited each day.
