About the Project
Shook Construction's mission is to "Dramatically improve the communities they serve." To live their mission, Shook invests time, money, and effort into every community surrounding a build project. In the fall of 2022, project engineer Melissa Lear approached me to help with the curriculum design and facilitation of a Shook-sponsored program for an after school program called Victory Project.
This endeavor included multiple pre-program meetings with the leadership
team at Victory Project. After evaluation of the program goals, logistics, and needs, I was tasked with building a six-month long STEM-based and career-based curriculum with presentation materials. This creative curriculum mirrored the structure of a home with the structure of each young man in the program. The semester ended with a field trip to an open Shook Construction jobsite located at the University of Dayton and Dayton Public Schools Welcome Stadium.
Various multimedia tools were used in the creation and facilitation of this project. A total of 20 Shook employees volunteered their time for this non-profit partnership.
