Ocean County Vocational Technical School
A donation from The Grunin Foundation assisted in jump-starting the OCVTS’s new home construction program in 2013-2014, which was developed in partnership with Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity to construct an affordable home for a single mother and her two children. This partnership has been a great success and is slated to continue with our next home in Manitou Park which will be constructed for a family of seven in 2014-2015.
The OCVTS New Home Construction Program was developed as an accelerated training program for adults. Classroom curriculum includes: extensive safety training, use of hand and power tools, blueprint reading, layout, industry-related mathematics, skills in framing, roofing, sheathing, siding, door and window installation, staircases, drywall installation, insulation, trim work, ceilings and floors. Students receive real-world experience in all phases of construction as work on-site at selected construction projects in Ocean County. Personal transportation is required.
