Student participating in the TASCAP program got their due on Monday morning.
Habitat For Humanity Regina celebrated the successes of the grade 11 and 12 students from across and outside of Regina for their work in the Trades and Skills Construction Apprenticeship Program for their work at the Haultain Crossing build site.
Work at the site is in phase three. Students involved helped to build an entire home.
Chelsey Lemke, the Fund Development Manager for Habitat Regina, noted the students benefit greatly from their work.
“As they develop throughout the semester on site and the houses grow, the relationships with the families grow to.”
That sentiment was echoed by Brian Shankowsky, Executive Director at the Regina Trades and Skills Centre, who said the skills the students acquire in the field can’t be replicated in the classroom.
“For example, when it’s 30 below, different things like that, they get a real feel for what it’s going to be like on the construction site.”
