#OneShot – Photos from Week 1

Participants in LEADERSHIP Philadelphia‘s 2014 Core Program joined YouthBuild’s Green Chasers and Advanced Legends building crews at the Wingohocking worksite on Wednesday. They will continue to join students every Wednesday over the next four weeks, and participate in the hands-on renovation of the two abandoned properties.

This partnership is an exciting opportunity – one of a kind, really, which is why we named the project “One Shot” – for executives in the region and YouthBuild students to work side by side and exchange ideas about what it takes to build a house and a career, make sacrifices, seize opportunities, and develop important life skills. We will continue to post updates, photos and anecdotes from students and Core Program participants as the project continues!

Below are some photos from Wednesday.  The task at hand was to tear out old drywall and lathe, and to sort the recyclable and non-recyclable materials according to LEED standards.
