Investing in the Future of Our Industry
Students are not being exposed to the wood industry as a career, they are not receiving certifiable training for entry level skills, and students are not encouraged to pursue post-secondary training with the wood industry in mind in our current education system. Ask yourself one question, did your high school counselor ever say to you, have you considered the wood industry as a career?

Currently in use by over 75 school systems, WoodLINKS® USA program helps over 10,000 students a year come to understand the personally and financially rewarding careers available to them in the wood industry. WoodLINKS® USA and its group of volunteers, teachers, and students are re-igniting a passion for woodworking careers, all across the country. With your help, we will be able to further our efforts and reach even more students eager to learn about our industry.
