What a day! We started off working with Youthbuild, an organization that gives education and vocational training for young adults who are looking to get back on the right track after dropping out of high school for various reasons. We spent the day laying down bricks for what will eventually be a patio and outdoor classroom at the Youthbuild facility. At the end of the day, we were all happy to see progress being made after only a few hours of hard work. Our excitement continued when we found out how much more we could accomplish as time goes on. Our crew was able to get to know each other better and to learn about how important teamwork is in order to get a job done. After a shower at the JCC, free sweet tea at Mc Alister’s, and a quick resupply trip to Target, it was a very successful first day and we were left looking forward to the days ahead.
