IFRC LOGOInstitute for Renovation Contractors (IRC) was established in 2016 and dedicated to the notion that there are great careers and opportunity in skilled trades, specifically renovation contracting.

The numbers are in and they prove that college isn't the only way to a rewarding and successful career. 

There are more than 3.3 million good paying jobs available right now, but there is an extreme shortage of available skilled talent to fill those jobs.  Over the last two or three decades, America has created a workforce saddled with more than a trillion dollars of student loan debt, and drastically scaled back or stopped teaching trade and vocational skills needed to build, rebuild, and repair at junior high school and high school level.

Setup as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt nonprofit organization, the IRC is the vehicle designed to serve society by directly and indirectly re-creating balance between skilled trade career education and college education.

Areas of Focus:

  • Assemble companies with resources to donate
  • Federal, state, local resources
  • Education (public and private)
  • Job training and placement programs
  • Certification and best practices
  • Financial assistance & scholarships

We invite your participation and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
