The Building Trades Program originated at Fredericksburg High School under the name Casa Über Alles with the help of Richard Laughlin and other local building professionals. This program is designed to give students the ability put on a tool belt and step on a work crew the day after graduation.
High schools around the Texas Hill Country have begun to implement their own projects modeled after Casa Über Alles and have accomplished similar goals.
One of the key factors of success is community involvement. Building professionals from the local area provide important guidance and instruction in a real-world setting. These mentors donate their time and resources to invest in the next generation of builders and blue collar workers.
Interest in adopting this program has been growing across the country. A truly grassroots movement, it can be tailored to meet the needs for schools whether a building trades program currently exists or not.
