Welcome to Fall 2022 InTouch Magazine

Advancing skilled trades 

Skilled trades are the backbone of our economy. They build and maintain the things we need like homes, factories, schools, and hospitals. They keep the lights on and ensure we have access to necessities like clean water. They provide the services we rely on every day such as food preparation, automotive service and repair, childcare and much more.
