2014 Best Practice Award Winner: Innovative Home Repair Methods
Sierra Service Project was the recipient for providing tool training for youth. A former SSP employee who nominated them said, “Sierra Service Project has been innovative in incorporating hands-on tool training to youth volunteers."
Since the age range of volunteers varies greatly, Sierra Service Project has integrated an in-depth, fun, hands-on way of teaching youth volunteers proper practices. This means volunteers whose projects don’t necessarily use a power tool, still get an education on proper use of them. This provides a fun, innovative lesson that can be integrated into other parts of the youth’s life.” What a great idea! We hope that other organizations will implement this best practice as well.
