FOUNDING AND FURTHERING REAL SKILLS WHILE BUILDING REAL HOUSES.
In the 2018-2019
CICC introduced a new Home Build program as part of the Careers in Construction program. This program enables students to construct a modular home on school district property as a part of their CTE classes. The goal is to have each school (that’s able) build at least one home per school year. Students will use the skills they have learned in their classroom settings – carpentry, plumbing, electrical and OSHA 10 safety – to construct the new home. Industry professionals will provide on-site support through Builder Captains as well as licensed trade partners.
Through industry donations at the local, regional, and national level, this program provides each school with the materials needed for students to build a small house.
self sustaining model.
Proceeds from the sale of the completed home will be reinvested in CICC, assuring visibility, viability and sustainability. Local and national supply companies are recognizing the value and success of CICC with commitments to the Home Build program keeping the cost of building low and profits significant to fund the program.
