Explore The Trades at ASCA 2023
Explore The Trades attended the American School Counselor Association Conference in Atlanta, GA from July 15-18, 2023. This conference brought together over 4,500 counselors and educators from all over the country.
Executive Director Kate Cinnamo, Donor Engagement Specialist Toni Bower, and Explore The Trades Trustee Lara Beltz of Beltz Home Service Co. attended and had great conversations about the importance of the plumbing, HVAC, and electrical trades with educators and counselors from around the nation! Alongside a tradeshow of over 200 exhibitors, the conference provided nearly 200 sessions that focused on the needs and education of students in K-12 learning environments.
Through these great connections, 160 different participants signed up for our new “More Than An Elective” program!
