Youth Remodeling Career Day

Posted by Michelle Glassburn, EM NARI Executive Director on 11 December 2018 | 0 Comments

On Tuesday, October 16th, students and teachers from 17 schools around Massachusetts and Rhode Island attended the third annual Youth Remodeling Career Day.  Nearly 500 students attended the event and participated in a variety of activities designed to highlight the range of careers and activities associated with the remodeling industry.

The event features a variety of hands on, interactive building activities in the barns. Students learned skills like stair building, installing siding with event sponsor James Hardie, installing windows, laying shingles, floor sanding with sponsor C & R Flooring, and much more.
