The Teaching Traditional Building/Landscaping Skills Training Project will expand an existing partnership based on service learning projects between Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and SEEDS/NWMYCC youth projects (ages 16-25). This expanded program will include teaching traditional skills that could provide a career opportunity, supplement incomes, and healthy avocations for youth.
