Students Gain Valuable Work Experience While Volunteering

EDWARDSVILLE — Future electricians have been getting first-hand experience working on a home for the less fortunate in Luzerne County.

On Monday 13 students from Fortis Institute in Forty Fort began installing wiring at a Habitat for Humanity home under construction in Edwardsville.

“This is a win-win initiative for our students, who benefit from gaining hands-on experience while performing a worthwhile community service,” said Fortis Institute electrical instructor John Dorman, who helped coordinate the partnership with Habitat for Humanity.

Their work is expected to wrap up Wednesday.
