Carpentry and community building 

From Monday to Thursday this week, MITT YouthBuild students are on the frozen waters of The Forks as hands-on contributors to the latest iteration of temporary fine dining experience RAW:almond, which sold out in just 90 minutes back in December.
Joe Kalturnyk, designer, architect and along with chef Mandel Hitzer, co-founder of RAW:almond, will lead MITT YouthBuild students and staff through the brisk assembly of this innovative temporary structure. 
The build commenced Monday morning with a single-day target of assembling the 16 x 32-foot inner structure that will house RAW:almond’s commercial kitchen and host 25 chefs from around the world. The timing couldn’t be better, MITT YouthBuild students have just completed their unit on framing and their next one, following the build, focuses on reading blueprints, something they’ll likely get exposure to this week.
This great example of community, programming, and business working together in partnership to achieve a goal promises to be an amazing experience for students and MITT YouthBuild as a whole.  
Projects updates and photos will appear throughout the four-day build on MITT’s social media channels—so watch for them there.
