Putnam Vocational Technical Academy Partners with Habitat for Humanity

Fields like high tech manufacturing and construction have experienced a skills gap—the need for skilled workers—in recent years. Putnam Vocational Technical Academy in Springfield provides hands-on training for students in several fields, preparing graduates to enter skilled jobs immediately after graduation. Students in Putnam’s carpentry program are already putting their skills to work helping others in need through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Carolee McGrath visits a local Habitat for Humanity build site to see the students in action.
