North Bay Construction Corps of Napa County

There are two Chapters in Napa County that meet in American Canyon at American Canyon High School, and Calistoga High School.

Training The Next Generation of Construction Workers

The American Canyon Chapter (South Napa Chapter) is led by Coordinator Chuck Peckingpaugh, and meets on Thursday evenings from 6-8 p.m.

The Calistoga Chapter (North Napa Chapter) is led by Coordinator Eric Parry (evening to be determined).

Dinner is served to the students at every meeting, and local contractors come in to talk about their trade, including how they got started and trained for their career and what a typical day looks like when you get into construction.

“The heavy equipment day was great. Operating the excavator gave me a good idea of how powerful these machines are. It made me want to pursue this type of job.”
