Refugee students get hands-on construction training
Nineteen newcomer refugee students from Red River College picked up tools recently to help Habitat for Humanity put the finishing touches on a new home for a Winnipeg family. The students are part of RRC's Language Training Centre's Pathway Program to Construction Skills. The students come from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Sudan. Their help at the Habitat build site will help them gain hands-on experience volunteering for the day as part of their practical training.
