Shadow Ridge Architecture students host YouthBuild/Friendly House
September 14, 2017

Shadow Ridge High School architecture students recently hosted YouthBuild/Friendly House students and faculty members for training on design and drafting skills through Softplan 2018 Pro architectural design software. The Shadow Ridge students served as "company trainers' and the YouthBuild students took on the role of "new company trainees" as they designed and drafted residential floor plans. This community service effort provided authentic workplace skills to both groups of students.

YouthBuild/Friendly House of Phoenix, is a national community service and education non-profit organization that provides youths with academic education, construction and occupational skills, leadership training, and community service learning. With the guidance and benefits provided by this program, youths will obtain their GED/HSE (High School Equivalency), construction certification, and move on to college, an apprenticeship or a career, making them independent, successful individuals.

The award winning Signature Architecture Program at Shadow Ridge High School is one of the many Career and Technical Education (CTE) opportunities at the Dysart Unified School District that allows students to achieve academic excellence through authentic, hands-on, career focused learning.
