  1. This is a program that the youth need in our home reserve in nwt. Awesome work guys. Very proud of the youth that are willing to do something that would benefit them in accomplishing a project that they can make for themselves n others in the future

  2. When I was in high school and college the construction students would frame up and finish a structure and then tear it down as it was just for practice and grades. This is the way it should be done everywhere. Good work, it will be rewarding for them to see it being put to use.

  3. Wonderful project for the youth. Awesome skills they have learning and they have developed.

  4. Congratulations! What a great idea and good work. Please flesh out this story. I want to know about the students, the program, community support. It’s an idea that should be shared.

  5. I feel pride to see the youth and their accomplishment.
    Thanks to the many people who supported, encouraged and endeavoured to make this happen.

  6. What an incredible accomplishment for you all. I was so proud to see that the youth from the YTC area were able to get in on this movement! Way to go! Keep building them.

  7. I’m sure it will be warm too. Saskatchewan is cold cold cold in the winter, and hot hot hot in the summer. It’s a Bi-polar province.
