SOME OF THE PARTICIPANTS IN NEW MEXICO

A group of Vanier College Architectural Technology students got a chance to put their newly-learned skills to a practical test as well as serve a humanitarian purpose during a class trip to New Mexico held in May and June of 2008.

Besides visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites, they also had a chance to participate in a Habitat for Humanity project to build a house for a deserving single mother. Their story was featured in a Saint-Laurent News article published in September 28, 2008. Read this article in its entirety. Also: you can read student testimonials.

We invite you to view some photos below taken during the trip.


A special thank you to the teachers who went on the trip: Donna Tolmatch, Peter Naylor and Zoya Duba. As well, thanks go to Judy MacDonald, John Atkins and Beverly Chandler for their support and to the Quebec government for the grant.
