Building Trades Training
Under the direction of our licensed contractor 'Trades-Trainer,' the students of Teens on Call have completed numerous modest building projects at our Pa`ia Training Center Campus (PTC), utilizing about 80% recycled lumber & materials from paid construction site cleanup assignments.
Grants & donations over the years have enabled us to pay student & trainer stipends as well as buy some materials & lunches for several PTC capital improvements projects, such as the wood-working shop, mechanical shop, classrooms, aquaponics building, greenhouse, etc.
Students on building trades projects learn how to identify tools and how to use them safely to accomplish tasks. These skills, practiced and learned, have opened doorways to vocational trades for many interested students since Teens on Call was established. Their success is our reward.
