Donald Chaiken Building Industry Technology Academy (BITA)
The mission of the Donald Chaiken BITA program is to provide a trained workforce to meet industry demand, offset worker retirement, and avoid labor shortages. BITA also enhances the public perception of the building industry, its diverse career opportunities, and hardworking employees.
The Donald Chaiken Building Industry Technology Academy (BITA) namesake is a result of a generous grant by the Donald and Carole Chaiken Foundation. Their contribution supports hands-on training, scholarship, and building industry workforce development programs.
“By contributing to the BITA program, I hope to generate the interest of young adults in our industry and help them develop the skills needed for success.”
