Cleveland teens to learn construction skills, help rehab 4 homes during summer program

This summer, 15 Cleveland teens will learn about the construction trades and use those skills to rehab four homes in the Buckeye-Woodhill neighborhood as part of the Building Great Futures initiative. 

The program, now in its fourth year, is a joint venture between Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio and Youth Opportunities Unlimited. It gives local teens the opportunity to not only see what a career in different trade fields would look like, but also to learn practical and useful skills they can apply at home. 

Members of the community, partner organizations and local media came together June 22nd for the official launch of the program.
