ABC of Metro Washington Student Chapters

ABC Student Chapters are quite simply micro chapters within area colleges and universities. ABC of Metro Washington, through its Student Chapters, seeks to provide a positive image of construction and to attract high quality candidates to the industry.

In addition to being eligible for scholarships, students belonging to an ABC Student Chapter benefit by being able to interact with construction industry professionals at ABC general meetings and by being eligible for summer internship and job fair opportunities.
