“The young people are incoming freshmen through seniors,” said Hana Richardson, one of seven staff members who have worked with the youth all summer. “A lot of the groups do fundraising to finance the trip, and 85 percent of our budget (for projects) comes from what the kids pay. The rest is from donors.” SSP provides all tools, materials and labor from those funds.

“If you show them how to do it once, then they can do it on their own for sure,” said construction supervisor Drew Izzo. “We’re on top of the precise measurements, but when it comes to cutting wood or mixing concrete, they are very competent.”
