The Young Urban Builders Attend Habitat’s Build With Strength Event

The Young Urban Builders, one of Athens Land Trust’s Youth Development programs, visited a Habitat for Humanity job site on February 18th, 2022 for their Build with Strength event to learn about building residential structures with concrete. The YUB observed that houses built with insulating concrete forms (ICFs) can look just like any other home, but they are stronger, more energy-efficient, and projected to last much longer than traditional builds. 

The Young Urban Builders perform owner-occupied rehabilitation in the West Broad neighborhood in Athens, and this amazing learning opportunity gave them an excellent insight into modern construction methods that will aid them in their community projects and neighborhood revitalization efforts!
