The best way to learn the processes and skills necessary for entry level success in the construction trades is to have hands-on experience of building homes and additions. This program does just that! Develop skills necessary for entry level workforce success in the construction trades industry or develop a base of experience for post-secondary education in related fields through hands-on experience of building a home. Using industry standard equipment and procedures, building design, print reading, foundation layout, masonry, framing, roofing, plumbing, finish carpentry, drywall application and finishing, and electrical wiring are areas in which you’ll gain experience. Internship opportunities are also available for qualified students.
Each year a home is built for an area resident selected from a pool of applicants.
