Service, Leadership and a

Competitive Edge


  This past October, the students of the Westamptom SkillsUSA Chapter at Burlington Co. Institute of Technology took part in what has become a service tradition for them.

They have developed a relationship with a local branch of Habitat for Humanity and using their CTE skills they help assemble furniture, recondition items and restock merchandise that is available for purchase at a Habitat for Humanity Re-Store location.  They also spent time working in nearby areas assisting Habitat volunteers installing flooring, trim and insulation, framing, painting and more.

  Skills USA advisor and Architecture and Design Technology Instructor at BCIT explains, "The SkillsUSA/Habitat for Humanity connection always permits students to come away with a host of powerful and rewarding educational experiences.  There is simply no substitute for the insight gained from onsite learning."
