Tools and Techniques Training

We’re looking forward to helping new volunteers gain confidence, to showing more seasoned DIY-ers and volunteers how they can hone and expand their skill set, and to empowering skilled builders to teach and support other volunteers through our Tools and Techniques training program.  Thanks to funding from CFCU Community Credit Union and the United Way Community Care Fund, trainings are open to all and entirely free of charge!  

Unless otherwise noted, all trainings take place from 9:00 – 11:00 AM at 1932 Slaterville Road, in Ithaca.
