Milwaukee Community Project Winners Announced!

Apr 12 2016

Our Milwaukee Community Project initiative received a number of excellent submissions from both Secondary and Post-Secondary teams of students and we are thrilled to announce the winners:

Secondary: Lasalle Secondary School, Sudbury - YMCA John Island Rejuvenation Project

This project is a unique program in its 11th year that involves the demolition of old and construction of new sleep cabins and accessory buildings for the YMCA John Island camp. Also, the renovation and repairing to current infrastructure to maintain the longevity of the camp site. The students will be out on the construction site from May 19 to June 3, 2016.

Post-Secondary: Mohawk College, Hamilton - Building Renovation Technician

Since 2010, the Mohawk College- Building Renovation Technician program has annually planned a community project. For 2016, they have partnered with Habitat for Humanity Hamilton, working on their Burton Street Build. This project of three townhouses gave the second year students the opportunity to put their interior finishing skills to the test. The students, headed up by a team of four student leaders took on hanging drywall, taping and mudding, and building permanent stairs for the houses.

The winners will receive a prize pack of Milwaukee tools valued at over $4000! These projects are a great example of how education and community can foster change at a local level. Skills Ontario thanks all teams for their outstanding contribution to the community.
