Our mission is to change the perceptions of skilled professions with students, parents and educators.

This year, JOCO WORKS was the first to feature BE PRO BE PROUD trucks in the entire state. This state-supported movement is bringing a new generation of pride, progress, and professionals to North Carolina’s skilled workforce. 

Two BE PRO BE PROUD tractor trailers housed mobile workshops where middle- and high-school students could gain hands-on experience with professions.  The goal of the program is to stimulate student, parent, and educator interest in technical professions within the construction, manufacturing, transportation, and utility industries.
