BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE
The Mikey 23 Foundation was founded in memory of Michael McKissic II. Michael "Mikey" was 23 years old when he was tragically taken from us. He worked for the family construction business, McKissic Construction, and like his father and grandfather before him; Mikey had a passion for the work.
The mission of the Mikey 23 Foundation is to improve the lives of young people through innovative education and training in the area of skilled trades. Led by licensed builders, electricians, plumbers, heating, ventilation and air conditioning contractors, the "Foundation" will provide hands-on opportunities for self-development and growth, thereby empowering young people to reach their full potential.
FACTS: The construction industry is facing a severe labor shortage! According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, millennials currently comprise the largest labor force in America. The median age of construction industry workers is 42.8 years, with workers under 34 years of age accounting for less than 1/3 of the total workforce.
We believe the Mikey 23 Foundation will prepare young people from all walks of life with necessary skills and abilities to obtain a life-long career in a high-demand industry!
If you would like to learn more or, if you know of youth who may be interested in a career in the skilled trades, please contact Michael McKissic at (517) 712-8446) or email him at
