Goals of the Young Construction Leaders Program

  • Create an informed, inquisitive young construction professional.
  • Provide a foundation level education in aspects of business management and strategic leadership within the construction industry, and encourage participants to build upon this education by learning more about these functions within their own firm, actively participating in these efforts with the goal of leading them in the future.
  • Create a strong understanding of the differences between management and leadership roles within an organization and how to successfully execute in both capacities.
    Improve the young professional’s technical capabilities and approach by creating a fuller context of his/her operational role within the organization, and how that role drives the organization’s performance.
  • Orient the young professional to the AGCVA and drive advanced participation, ultimately developing the next class of AGCVA leadership, from the ground level. Focus on understanding and participation in efforts including community service, workforce development, and industry advocacy on important legislative issues.
  • Inspire a passion for collaboration with interrelated industries on shared issues and challenges, as well as the overall advancement of the construction and development community.
