ROSEMOUNT TECHNOLOGY CENTRE TEAMS UP WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

MONTREAL, AUGUST 28, 2013-  In an effort to contribute to their community, the students and staff of the Cabinet Making program at Rosemount Technology Centre (RTC) will team up with Habitat for Humanity. The students will exercise their newly acquired skills by helping Habitat for Humanity build two kitchens for a renovation project in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve that will welcome two Montreal families this fall.

In addition to providing students with a sense of community contribution, this will also be an opportunity for students to gain tactical experience and organizational skills. Due to Habitat for Humanity’s commitment to the LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) students will also be improving their employability while contributing to a great cause. For the staff at RTC, the “Habitat Kitchen Project” is one more way of ensuring that students leave school with the skills they need in today’s working industry.

Under the supervision of instructor Eliane Kinsley, cabinet construction will take place in the RTC Cabinet Making shop between September 4th and 18th. The school and industry partners, such as Formica, have contributed materials to help make the project possible.  The staff and students at RTC are proud to be taking part in such a wonderful project.
