This spring YRNO has the pleasure of welcoming four student interns from one of our partner schools, Sci Academy. Antonio, D’Juan, Charles and Thomas work for YRNO twice a week for training in construction in an effort to prepare to enter the workforce. They work either in small groups or one-on-one with our full time construction staff on site to learn construction skills necessary to supplement the work of the volunteers and full time staff.
Since their arrival in February the young men have learned a number of construction techniques including how and when to use different saws, framing and framing restoration techniques, the parts and purpose of foundation work as well as how to use numerous other tools. Prince and John have immensely enjoyed having them on board the construction team this spring and look forward to seeing what they accomplish.
