Building Futures Airdrie Site Dedication

Posted on

Media are invited to join Rocky View Schools (RVS) and McKee Homes for a site dedication to commemorate the start of the 2023/24 Building Futures Airdrie build.

The site dedication will take place on Oct. 5 at 11 a.m. at 3242 Chinook Winds Dr.

Building Futures is a full-year academic program for Grade 10 students offered in partnership with local builders in Airdrie and Cochrane. In addition to learning subjects like math, science, social studies and English, students work together to construct a house. Through the program, they engage in hands-on learning guided by tradespeople associated with residential home building. The Airdrie program recently celebrated its 10th year during the 2022/23 school year.

More information about the program is available on the Building Futures webpage.
