How This Old House is Helping Close the Skills Gap

There’s a crucial need to encourage the next generation of skilled craftspeople, says master carpenter Norm Abram. Here’s what This Old House is doing 

The number is shocking: In 2017, almost 6 million jobs in the building trade will go unfilled due to a lack of skilled applicants. TOH’s Generation Next project aims to turn that around by inspiring a fresh appreciation of skilled jobs in the construction industry, by mentoring the next generation of craftspeople, and by raising funds for the mikeroweWORKS (MRW) Foundation’s Work Ethic Scholarship Program.
