"Being a framer is a good job, but there are physical hazards on the job site. "

Health and safety are top workplace priorities, especially on a construction site.

Former Building Industry Technology Academy (BITA) student, Yulia Khandrya (pictured above), navigates health and safety hazards every day as a full-time framer for L&S Framing.

Yulia has found a lucrative and fulfilling career in framing. Even though it "wears your body out," as she describes her job, it also "gets you out of your comfort zone, and that's where the real growth occurs."

With your help, the California Homebuilding Foundation is providing comprehensive construction training to thousands of BITA students across the state, but now more than ever, students are in need of proper certification through OSHA 10.

OSHA 10 trains young professionals like Yulia on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the construction industry. 

OSHA certification can be achieved 100% online, which is why there is an urgent need to fulfill this required training for students learning at home during the COVID-19 outbreak.

“About 70% of the students in my school are on the free or reduced lunch program. They would not be able to afford the cost of OSHA 10,” says Dylan Howard, BITA Instructor at Antioch High School.

Will you make an emergency tax-free donation to train and certify students during COVID-19?

Your donation of $100 funds online OSHA 10 training to four (4) students in our BITA program.

Your donation of $750 supports OSHA 10 training for an entire class of 30 students.

Students need online OSHA 10 certification now, so they can stay on track to graduate and have the required job safety qualifications to pursue their careers.

Your gift today will help us strengthen the BITA program and increase our services supporting the homebuilding industry.

Please help us ease the financial burden of our students to give them the education and training they need now.

With gratitude and optimism,
