Long Term Workshop Spotlight: Woodworking

During our spring semester of Long Term Programming, HALO youth had the opportunity to participate in a woodworking workshop where they learned basic woodworking skills while making a self-designed lamp. The boys collaborated with the volunteers to create a lamp design, build a base, and execute their plan during the eight week course. The HALO youth worked with a variety of tools and tried different skills that will be applicable to many future careers. The workshop also allowed youth to explore important life skills such as goal-setting, perseverance, and focus. Many thanks to the woodworking volunteers: Jake, Patrick, Mike, and Jono.
