“hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work [detail] I go…”


Chopping vines with an axe 🙂


Using a chainsaw for the first time!

To help keep the training costs low, the students here pitch in and help with work projects (like cleaning, maintenance, etc) for 7.5 hours each week. We call it “work detail.”


Hauling firewood with Josiah 🙂

Last semester, my work detail was cleaning the Construction Maintenance Team building, plus cleaning outside (like windows, cobwebs, sidewalks, etc). This semester, I asked to be put on Grounds Crew so I could do more outdoors work. I love it! So far, I’ve gotten to help cut down dead trees, haul and split firewood, clear brush and vines, prune bushes (preparing the plants for spring) and drive a dump truck! I also get to help haul furniture every so often. Here are some pictures of my adventures on work detail:
