Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter alongside The Villages Charter School, Leesburg, South Lake, and Eustis High Schools will kick off construction of four new homes in partnership with Habitat’s Youth Construction Academy.
Key community players and house sponsor, Citizen’s First Bank, will kick-off The Villages Charter School’s fourth year of the program, followed by house sponsor, RoMac Building Supply’s ground breakings with Leesburg and South Lake High Schools. Habitat Lake-Sumter will also introduce Eustis High School’s enrollment into the Youth Construction Academy for their first new home build.
New classes of students will spend time during the school week working side by side with Habitat’s construction staff and professional tradesmen on live construction projects, providing hands-on learning at dedicated build sites.
Construction will be ongoing during the school year from September through May. In May, the students and teachers will be included in the dedication ceremony where the keys to the house will be handed to a family in need that has gone through Habitat’s Home Ownership program.
