Student And Young Adult Programs

Florida’s Statewide Workforce Development Program provides opportunities for students and young adults to learn about what it takes to build Florida’s roads and bridges, developing pipelines into the transportation industry.

Student Construction Internships

FDOT is making it easier for contractors to find quality interns. The Student Construction Internship program matches students and young adults – ages 16-24 with leading industry contractors for paid work experience. Students get a PAID real-world experience working up to 40 hours per week learning the skills and activities that go into building Florida’s road and bridges. Contractors get eager young workers – at no cost – to support entry-level work needs and a potential future full-time hire. To enroll in our PAID Internship, complete the Internship Agreement and submit it to Alex Montaner at [email protected] or call 813-309-5842.

Student Construction Career Academy

The Student Construction Career Academy is an immersive experience for Florida high school and technical-school students to learn about the paths to possible road and bridge construction careers. During the academy, contractors will use an interactive approach to teach students about industry opportunities, practices, operations, and various trades and craft skills.

Florida Construction Career Days Participation
