This is Habitat’s third year partnering with the Washington School for the Deaf through their Work Readiness program. Through this partnership, we have found amazing volunteers who help us achieve our mission of building safe and affordable homes. This year was no exception as Colt and Adam joined us.
Adam and Colt have spent the last seven months working on our build site. From digging ditches and framing walls, to installing cabinets and painting, they have been through every step of construction. “I’ve learned how to communicate well with everyone on site and I’ve also learned so many useful construction skills. I have so much more confidence in myself thanks to this program.” Says Adam.
Both students will be attending the Washington Career Academy through WSD. Their courses will focus on construction in partnership with the NW College of Construction. We have greatly enjoyed working with and look forward to seeing what the future holds for these bright young men.
