The organization Habitat for Humanity of Dane County is finishing the last of 12 homes, completing the project with the help of students from the Sun Prairie High School.
For the past four years, a project in the Vandenburg Heights neighborhood has led to a dozen homes being built, providing affordable housing through Habitat for Humanity. Over the past three years, students from the Sun Prairie High School have helped build three homes.
Each year, roughly a dozen students join the project site, learning valuable skills while helping crews complete the homes in the neighborhood.
The real-world opportunity to have a hands-on building experience teaches students how to fix several things around the home, from building a cabinet to fixing the floor trim. It is also a rewarding way to help people who need a home.
