Orientation Preview

Orientation offers a chance for team members to interact and get to know one another, learn about people with disabilities and most importantly participate in construction safety training provided by volunteers from A Concord Carpenter, LLC. and ToolBoxBuzz, to prepare them for the life-changing events ahead. This is going to be a very high energy, fast-paced time for team members to dive headfirst into an experience that will change the way they view themselves and those around them. If you have questions or need further information please contact Zack Agerton at zagerton@abilityexperience.org.

Team Orientation

Bringing all the members together for the first time, team orientation is the beginning of an epic summer. With safety first in mind, orientation is broken down into two main components, “classroom style” education followed by hands-on experience and in-depth power tool training. Each team member will gain knowledge and experience in tool usage, worksite rules/safety, and basic team operations.

Travel Information
Build America Team Members must report to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) by 3:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, June 11, 2019.

The orientation will be fast-paced and rigorous, but the team will have the opportunity to participate in some fun activities as well as seeing some of the best of what the city of Boston has to offer!
