The below opportunity is a perfect for anyone who enjoys working with children and wants to help introduce students to construction.
AGC Georgia’s Foundation recently provided seed money to help create after school Construction Clubs at elementary schools that feed into Roswell High School. Two new programs are modeled after a very successful one at Mimosa Elementary. I visited this program last year and was very impressed with how much the children are learning. — Watch this short video clip and you’ll be inspired!
We are in URGENT need for volunteers to introduce elementary students to woodworking skills. The program’s director, Jeffrey Prothero, has asked me to help find 5 – 6 volunteers to make a 3-4 week commitment working one day a week for 75 minutes in the classroom (this equates to volunteering for 75 minutes for one day a week over a 3-4 week period.)
The job consist of helping safely keep the students on track while building their small woodworking projects. That’s all. No construction background is necessary, but it’s a bonus if we get pros or handy do-it-yourselfers.
The only MUST is that volunteers have to love kids and have genuine desire to help out. Volunteers need to be in the classroom by 2:15 pm (that gets you to the school 15 minutes before club begins) and the volunteers can leave at 3:45pm.
Volunteers will work in ONE of three Roswell elementary schools, each of which holds Construction Club one day a week. The schedule is:
- Tuesdays at Mountain Park Elementary
- Wednesdays at Mimosa Elementary
- Thursday at Vickery Mill Elementary
The clubs are currently working on building toolboxes. The immediate need begins next week on February 13 and runs through the week beginning March 6.
Please contact Jeffrey “J” Prothero for more information at 724-651-1499.
PLEASE CONSIDER HAVING A SUPERINTENDENT, PROJECTMANAGER, OR ANY OTHER TEAM MEMBER WHO LOVES WORKING WITH CHILDREN VOLUNTEER.
If we grow the number of young children who are interested in construction, we’ll have more students enrolled in construction-focused courses in middle and high school – leading to a larger pool of individuals who will seek a career in construction. This is the most basic of the grassroots elements to building our industry’s sustainable skilled talent pipeline. Please consider making a difference – share this opportunity with your team and anyone know who lives or works around the Roswell area.
