Local Youth Program Helping Community and Themselves

Posted: Updated:

They are helping their community and themselves.

A  group of students tackled a building project that will benefit people with disabilities.

A YouthBuild Program in Cadillac teamed up with Home Depot to build garden boxes.

These aren't normal garden boxes, they are designed to be wheelchair accessible.

The YouthBuild Program has been learning construction techniques in their shop and has been busy putting their skills to the test.

The YouthBuild Program is also partners with the After 26 Project in Cadillac who are hoping to use the produce from the garden in their new restaurant.
