What is the "WOW Factor" in Project WOW? "They Gave Us Hope!!"
Project WOW students volunteer in the community helping to rehab neighborhood homes in dire need of repairs.
The program focuses on teaching students skills in the building trades (carpentry, electrical, plumbing, weatherization), so they can prepare for the world of work.
Our students work together to complete class projects that help them to gain hands-on skills working inside and outside of the home.
Within the program, students spend time preparing for the various sections of the GED test.
Our instructor Doug and assistant program manager Sylvia worked with Jacob (middle) to get ahead in life.
