WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?
“I think of that day often and how that day was the driving force behind my mission in life to eradicate the public perception that a career in the construction trades is second class.”
Jennifer E. Germaine, Founder and CEO
When I was in 7th grade, I was sitting with five teammates waiting to play in a volleyball match. The six of us were in the gym sitting on a stage overlooking the volleyball courts. Off to our left side were the wooden bleachers with all our families, friends and faculty sitting watching the games.
While we were sitting there, one of my teammates whispered to the group “Hey, look over there at that dirty, creepy man staring at us.”
We all looked over to the man she was pointing at. After taking in the man, I lowered my head. This dirty, creepy man was my father. A union pipefitter, who moments ago, had been working at the nuclear power plant during a shutdown wearing his fitters cap and work clothes. He had come straight from work to watch me play. I felt embarrassed and ashamed. I internalized their comment to mean my father and I were less important and valuable then their Dad’s, who were bankers and lawyers.
I think of that day often and how that day was the driving force behind my mission in life to eradicate the public perception that a career in the construction trades is second class. That day drives me to change the way society values a career in the construction trades by helping training programs become more dynamic and powerful than ever before.
