Megan Kosefeski is one of the many students taking part in the school’s Winter Intensive program, which allows for hand-on learning outside of the classroom.

“It feels really good everyday not only to do physical work, but to know that the work you’re doing means a lot,” Megan said. “I’ve had friends of my own who have had Habitat houses built for them, and we’re reading a book about all the stories written by the CEO of Habitat for Humanity.”

Students have also recently pitched in by painting the Habitat Store, and landscaping at another build site.
