Educating the Community About the Electrical Industry

The Electrical Alliance to Sponsor Instructive Activities at National Building Museum’s Big Build on September 21st

The Electrical Alliance and its Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) know that in order to build a strong community, you must contribute to it. This is why they are sponsoring activities at Big Build 2013.

The National Building Museum’s Big Build is a hands-on family festival that attracts more than 4,500 visitors annually and provides the opportunity for children to work alongside experienced artisans and craftsmen as they demonstrate skills. It introduces youth to a wide range of respected professions with interactive demonstrations, games, and activities, while educating them on the built environment.
