ACE 1st Trades Day

On Tuesday, May 16, ACE students and mentors participated in our first Trades Day at the Finishing Trades Institute.  Students were able to tour the facility and participate in many hands-on activities related to the trades.  Participants learned about the importance of following safety protocols in a work environment and were able to speak with many of FTI’s instructors.

Students also were able to try their hands at hanging wallpaper, painting a wall, setting glass into a frame, and walking on stilts!  Many thanks to FTI for providing our students with an exceptional experience!
