As you may have heard, This Old House has partnered with the mikeroweWORKS Foundation in a nationwide effort to increase the pipeline of skilled workers in America. We’re so deeply committed to this program, in fact, that we’re harnessing all of our media assets to elevate the building trades as a rewarding career path and to help raise money for the mikeroweWORKS Foundation’s Work Ethic Scholarship program.

Thanks to the generosity of our charter supporters, we’ve raised $500,000 for mikeroweWORKS scholarships to date. And we’re just getting started.

For the 2017-2018 season of This Old House, we’re buying a home and renovating it in real time across all of our platforms. Profit from the sale of this house will be used to fund more mikeroweWORKS scholarships. We’re also launching a nationwide casting call for the next generation of talent—three apprentices who will learn from and work alongside our TOH TV crew. We’ll fly them in, house them, pay them a stipend for a 10-week summer apprenticeship, and feature their stories on TOH TV.

The response to this new program has been astounding! We’ve received hundreds of letters from TOH fans wanting to learn more about our efforts and how they can help. There are lots of ways that individuals, associations, and businesses—large and small—can get involved:

We welcome your involvement, and look forward to your support!
