ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students at Albany Tech will soon help build homes for families in need. Albany Technical College is teaming up with Flint River Habitat for Humanity to give their student's studying construction some hands on experience.  The goal is to help build at least one house a year.

"We proposed this proposal to Habitat for Humanity a couple weeks ago and they were excited about it. We wanted to give our students an opportunity to have some real world experience and also give them an opportunity to do a noble service for their community,"

Right now the students get their experience from internships and working in demonstration labs. They could begin building as early as October. Feedback
