THE HCAP ADVANTAGE

Students experience all aspects of the residential construction industry by building a home themselves. They experience the enormous pride and satisfaction that comes from completing a major project that contributes to the well-being of a family in the community. Students are guided throughout the home-building process by seasoned trades people from a variety of trades. Students gain sought after certifications that will increase their qualifications and augment their resumes. Students earn six credits in this program and can gain up to 640 hours towards their apprenticeship through the apprenticeship board and the Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship Program. 

DIVERSE COMMUNITY

HCAP is open to all Grade 11 and 12 public school students in the Saskatoon area. We make every effort to ensure students stay connected to their home schools by suggesting that Grade 12 students attend during the first semester, allowing them to graduate with their peers. We also support school teams and students can travel to their home school for sports and clubs. HCAP works in the community and we are partners with Habitat for Humanity and other community groups.

EQUIPMENT

All students will complete the Safety Construction Orientation Training online course. We ask that all students bring a 2G flashdrive/USB. All necessary safety wear is supplied, except safety work boots.
