​Building With Our Veterans

BWOV Logo.png 

Building With Our Veterans is a program focused on recruiting and training military veterans who have  building safety experience and construction skills for jobs as code officials.

The goal is to meet staffing needs for on-going Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement functions, while providing an opportunity for unemployed and under-employed veterans to find long-term sustainable employment and continue to serve the community.

Veterans with Winner-Seal_04.24.17_mLe (1).pngexperience in the construction trade -- building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing, for example -- might be eligible. The inaugural class began in January 2016.  The third class is expected to begin in January 2018.

The program is a collaboration of Mecklenburg County departments -- the Veterans Services Division of Community Support Services, the Code Enforcement Division of Land Use and Environmental Services Agency, Human Resources  -- and Central Piedmont Community College.
