In 2006, Freure Homes teamed up with the Waterloo Regional School Board to participate in the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP). This ‘School to Work’ program opens the door for students to explore and work in apprenticeship occupations starting in Grade 11 or Grade 12 through the Cooperative Education program.
Through Freure Homes, this gives students a chance to participate in the construction of a home. Once the foundation is poured, and the backfilling is completed, it’s up to the students to build the home from the foundation up. A teacher with a background in construction assumes the role as the job foreman.
In total, there have been 6 houses built by this program in both Kitchener and Cambridge. This excellent program allows students to gain experience and knowledge in the construction field to help select a career later in life.
