Hi, my name is Gerardo Granillo. I am a Mile High Corpsmember. I’m part of the YouthBuild team. I’ve been working and going to school for the last month. And it is going great so far.
In the construction shop we are learning how to measure, hammer in some nails, and use some power tools. For some of us this is new. One of the things I like about the construction shop is that we get to work with different types of power tools and wood.
Right now, we’re learning how to build and frame walls, windows, and doors. That’s a cool skill to have for the future. Another thing that we did in the shop was learn about solar panels. We learned how to assemble the panels on a demo roof and how they worked. This is us assembling one at the shop.
