Some Rochester residents who dropped out of high school, served time in prison, or simply struggled with establishing a career, are learning the skills of the construction trade.
Andy Evans, a master builder with years of experience, is offering classes in a former church on Buffalo Road in Gates. Evans said someone once taught him how to do this work when he was younger.
"I was at a part of my life where I could have gone down the wrong road," he said. Now, Evans wants to help young men who haven't found a good paying job or a career they like.
