Additional funding has enabled economically disadvantaged youth to study under experienced contractors who teach carpentry, plumbing, electrical wiring and other basic home maintenance skills. In the past three years, Tiger Pause participants have led or played a major role in local building projects. Youth have constructed five new homes and were instrumental in turning an older house into a coffee shop that serves the downtown community known as the Beez Cafe. Students have also been the driving force behind the deconstruction of an Old Dairy Queen and the Old Rite Aid building in Beaver Falls. The Old Dairy Queen will be an expansion of the Splash Pad, and the Old Rite Aid building is now the Redemption Center.
