Y Build Of Nashville Offers Helping Hands

Thirty young men from the Y Build program in Nashville are volunteering their skills and time this week to the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build in Antioch. Y Build is a unique program offered through the YMCA of Middle Tennessee that offers young men ages 18-24 an opportunity to grow in mind, body and spirit, as well valuable training in construction skills. Torando Hicks, Derek Dorsey and Jeremy Arvin are three of the young men volunteering their time this week.

“It’s really been great. Everyone is smiling and there has been a lot of great communication and networking,” said Hicks.

“We’ve really been doing a little of everything from framework, concrete and cleanup. We’re just here to help how ever we can,” said Dorsey.

The guys have been volunteering the last two days, and will continue to work throughout the week!
