In the next decade the United States needs 3,000,000 workers who have only a high school degree or less but only 1.7 skilled or unskilled will enter in those years.* Our purpose is to help talented individuals find careers in the plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical residential service industry. Join our mission by making a donation this #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2015 or by participating in our #unselfie contest (click here for details!)
The Foundation provides scholarships for tuition and fees for students entering a PHCE residential career.
Explore The Trades provides information on PHCE residential service careers to young people.
Troops To Trades provides career placement, training and grants for military veterans, Reserve and Guard members.
In honor of our 10 year anniversary, the Nexstar Legacy Foundation has 3 goals for GivingTuesday:

$250,000 Scholarships Given

We Need More Technicians In The Industry – there is a major shortage of skilled workers in the US, and with only 6% of students considering a career in the trades it is only getting worse.
You Can Help A Veteran Or A Young Person – through our efforts we have helped 125+ students and 50+ veterans find a fulfilling career in the trades.
It Will Help Your Industry And Business – over the past 10 years we have worked with more than 150 different businesses in the PHCE industry.
