High school students can sign up for a program that is bringing a new face to Practical Arts and make a difference in their community and obtain real life skills. In addition, 15 year old to 29 year old vulnerable youth who are not registered in school can benefit from this by gaining knowledge, life skills and by participating in a program that teaches construction while learning and building right at home.

We are a mobile practical arts program that gives students exposure to the construction trades while building a complete home with peers and some of which who are working towards a diploma they may have already given up on. Integrated Services assists in oneonone individual assessment to make sure each student has the pre requirements and is given all the tools. Having this opportunity, leaving the success up to them, and starting their JOURNEY to APPRENTICESHIP Programs. Students may be on assistance through program.
