Bethel Regional Construction Academy



The Bethel Regional Construction Academy was started in 2010 with two, two-week intensive academies held in May and June to prepare individuals from six communities in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta for work in weatherization and construction fields.

In 2011 a two-week intensive academy was held in May to train individuals from the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta communities of Tuntutuliak, Kongiganak, and Akiak. Ten individuals were trained in the skills needed to become building maintenance and repair workers in their communities.

Academies were held at Yuut Elitnaurviat in Bethel. The goal of the academy is to train individuals to become entry-level construction industry employees.
