Josh, and his wife Darla, share what their Still Building America Project is all about! Their passion for promoting the skilled trades is highlighted by life's highs and lows - from their ties to the blue collar world, travel stories, and how being victims of crime in Detroit fueled a fire for standing up against injustice in their community. The Still Building America project promotes awareness of the skilled trades as viable career options for our country’s next generation. Americans haven’t forgotten how to work with our hands, but our education system has struggled to properly present and foster a blue collar career as anything other than a Plan B, if at all. By paving a way for our youth to explore the blue collar world, getting tools into their hands, inspiring them to create, repair, and problem solve, and empowering them with fun educational opportunities beyond the traditional classroom experience, we are still building America.
