Tennessee Builders Education Foundation

A national leader for career training in the building industry.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
The Builder

For the structure that we raise
Time is with materials filled;
Our todays and yesterdays
Are the blocks with which we build.
Build today, then, strong and sure,
With a firm and ample base;
And ascending and secure *

Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission is to connect people and the construction industry through education, mentorship and career placement.

Our Vision is one that transforms the lives and communities through hands-on technical education and careers in the construction industry.

"The event was very successful. We were able to pass out 250 backpacks to citizens in the community. We had great news coverage on the day of the event from Channel 5, Channel 13, and Channel 24.  We would like to continue to collaborate with you and your students. Please let me know when you are available to set up a zoom meeting to share how we can support your students. Thanks again for your support with this event"
