For MFG Big Idea 6, we have identified the L.O.V.E T.O. (Lending Our Voluntary Effort to Others) as an organization we'd like to ask for your support.
The goal of the L.O.V.E T.O. program is to provide access to young African American men and women with multiple barriers to education and economic opportunity, to attain the skills and opportunities needed to obtain a career in construction and thus improve their quality of life. L.O.V.E. T.O. has five critical learning outcomes for students related to success in the construction field, including:
(1) Life Skills and Work Ethics,
(2) Trade Proficiencies to enter an Apprenticeship,
(3) Drivers License support,
(4) Basic Construction Skills & some Math,
(5) Basic Knowledge of the trades in the Construction industry.
As a part of the training program students have been building tiny houses for emergency housing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The training program also participates in building a portion of twenty-two one bedroom cottages that will provide affordable housing at Magnuson Park.Please help us support L.O.V.E. T.O. to make positive change in our community!
