In just over two years, students from Roxbury High School, in Succasunna, N.J., successfully completed a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, which they opted to donate to a disadvantaged family in their community, the National Association of Home Builders reports. Students in the school's Structural Design and Fabrication course constructed the modular home in the school's parking lot, a process that began with rigorous safety instruction and eventually led to OSHA 10 certification.

The course has led Roxbury to win the NAHB Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE).

“Our entire community rallied around helping us complete the home, and we’re seeing the same support as we begin work on a second home,” said Frank Caccavale, structural design and fabrication instructor at Roxbury High School. “We’ve had people offering their time to teach invaluable skills to our students, donating products and funds to complete the project, and being incredible supporters helping to promote the skilled trades to our students.”
