Executive Summary

Western Dairyland's Fresh Start program provides education, employment skills, career direction and civic engagement to 20 at-risk young adults, ages 16-24, by involving them in the construction of 2 new Energy Star, passive solar houses. When completed, the houses are sold to income-eligible families in the community. In addition to the "hands-on" learning experience that comes from building a house, Fresh Start offers classroom instruction, community service and job search assistance.
