    We build these ramps in sections and all sections are pre-built in our shop. Today we have quite the backlog of ramps, and in such, we could use help on building ramp sections. No skill level is needed as we will take any student and certainly guide them through the process keeping safety as a top-priority. We will provide the tools, the materials, and the instructions. It would be ideal if we were to set this up 4 students at a time, and we are flexible on day/time availability. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Alan Millage at alan.millage@kentww.com or call/text at 563-726-3433.
