In April 2011 YouthBuild Just-A-Start committed to a day of service with long time partner, The Cambridge Housing Authority. YouthBuild's main assignment was to dismantle a Gazebo from Cambridgeport to North Cambridge. YB students and supervisors accomplished the octagonal structure and wheelchair ramp. YB students learned new carpentry techniques and skills. The coalition applauds all students, staff and partner Cambridge Housing Authority for their efforts to improve our communities. Attached below is a photo album of the Gazebo event.
On Wednesday November 9, 2011 YB Boston had their annual Housewarming event. YouthBuild Staff and students as well as other partners collaborated together to improve the conditions of two non-profit organizations. The project sites were located at the Freedom house in Dorchester and the Hildebrand Family Self- Help Center in Cambridge. YouthBuild Students, staff, and volunteers assisted with weather-stripping, caulking, foaming and door/window repairs. This community event had a wonderful turn out and helped our neighbors be better prepared for this winter season. Lead sponsor Bank of America also dedicated their time and efforts to serve the community. Enclosed below is some on-the-scene footage of the Housewarming event.
