Construction Corner: YouthBuild

We were honored to be able to partner with YouthBuild, a program led by Tech High School teacher Bill Garceau, this summer. The work the team completed was of great help with our mission of building safe, affordable housing.

 

We have partnered with YouthBuild for at least 10 years, including last year’s first Tiger Build. Youthbuild is a program intended to teach youth construction skills. With the current shortage of construction workers, this program is a huge asset to our community and our local construction companies.

 

Bill Garceau and his YouthBuild team carried the ball during some tough tasks, and were a great help. It’s a win-win, with us giving the students practical construction experience, while we get a skilled teacher who can teach the more technical parts of a project. We look forward to working with YouthBuild in the future.
