WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A place that teaches valuable skills to disadvantaged kids in downtown Wilmington is getting a complete makeover, for free.
‘Kids Making It’ aims to teach valuable life and vocational skills through woodworking.
Program director Andy Crowther says they wanted to start a skilled trades program for older teens.
In response, Atlantic Barn & Timber Company is donating a two-story timber frame addition to the existing space.
Teens will learn plumbing, electrical, HVAC and general construction skills, and receive help getting jobs in their desired field.
