NEW ONLINE STORE
BYF unveiled its new online store at byfstore.nccer.org for customers to order printed resources and career day kits. Shoppers can view all available promotional pieces and purchase directly on the site. The store features updated brochures, trading cards and newly released posters and bookmarks. In addition to the store, customers can continue to download free resources at byf.org.
The Indiana Construction Roundtable Foundation partnered with BYF to encourage residents to learn about construction careers and training opportunities now emerging in the state. To kick off the partnership, the website indiana.byf.org was launched, and customized promotional materials were distributed to more than 1,000 Indiana high schools. Along with these materials, customized presentations, videos and career day resources were created to promote construction careers in schools, meetings, conferences and career day events across the state. In addition, over 1 million people viewed the three TV commercials that BYF created for the partnership, and a Build Your Future Indiana magazine was published.
