Habitat High teaches students skilled labor

HALL COUNTY, Ga. -- When Gov. Nathan Deal launched his Go Build Georgia program, he spoke of 16,000 new jobs that will become available to people with the necessary skills.

A high school initiative in Hall County is making sure that today's students will become some of tomorrow's most employable members of the workforce.

"Habitat High" has students spend a part of their school day building homes for Habitat for Humanity. The students have built eight houses in five years and are currently finishing up their ninth home.
