The club also improved the outside facilities at a temporary transitional shelter for homeless individuals in Appleton. “The organization’s railings were in need of repair,” says 32-year-old club member, Amber Kraemer. “Some sections also needed to be moved for better access. We drew up a plan and did the work on site.”
While club members enjoy helping others, the volunteer work also enhances their skills. “In addition to learning problem-solving skills and gaining hands-on practice, club members discovered how to keep each other motivated and how to work in teams,” states Dave Fisher, club advisor and welding instructor. "It all adds to the value of our program and the students’ learning experience."
