Because of the WAVS School’s reputation for quality work, many people in the local community hire the welding department to work on a wide variety of projects, including small repair jobs like fixing broken bicycles and wheelbarrows.
The welding department is also the only place in town that can handle complex welding projects, such as constructing roofs, mass producing benches for village churches, and building playground equipment for local schools (like the ones in the photos below).
This holiday season, we invite you to discover 12 unique projects that WAVS welding students work on during their training. Every few days, we’ll share a new welding project on Facebook and Instagram and the stories behind them.
The WAVS Welding Department focuses on building practical skills. Students learn by doing. Today, you can Spark Opportunity for a future welding entrepreneur by providing hands-on training for young people like Papa.
Between now and the end of the year, the Seattle nonprofit One Day's Wages will match every gift made in support of WAVS welding students — dollar for dollar — up to $15,000!
