BuildUp Program

Program Overview

The purpose of the On-the-Job Training program is to provide relevant technical and highway construction trades-related training, as well as workplace-life skills, for women, minorities, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals within Maryland. Its goal is to increase employment potential to underserved groups by providing training and hands-on experience. It will also provide exposure to employers through temporary placements and job fairs, which may lead to permanent employment.

The initial focus of the program will be within the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan region (i.e. Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard, Prince Georges, Montgomery and Frederick Counties). It is anticipated that the program will expand to other geographic areas and other Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) agencies in future years.
