Second and third year students at Newfoundland’s College of the North Atlantic (CNA) are lending a hand to Habitat for Humanity.
While this isn’t the first year CNA students have worked with the charity, 2012 marks the first time the students were able to gain practical experience by working on site.
“I started with Habitat for Humanity in 2009 and one of reasons I got involved was because I saw a great potential for our students in the trades and technology programs to learn on the job and apply their skills to help their community so it’s a form of community engagement,” said Craig Greene, the Architectural Engineering Technology instructor at CNA, in a statement.
“I’m an architect and I believe in what Habitat for Humanity does but I also saw an opportunity for our students to benefit from that experience, to learn on site and have a good time.”
The students helped with wood framing, which they had learned about a few months prior.
Construction on the home began on October 9 and is expected to be complete in early December.
