Earlier today Doster Construction Company hosted 16 middle Tennessee high school students who were selected to participate in the Nashville Civic Design Center “Design Your Neighborhood” program. The students learned about estimating, scheduling, safety, and were given a virtual reality tour of a higher education project.
Design Your Neighborhood (DYN) is a paid internship program for high school students in the Nashville area that teaches them about improving their community through design. During a DYN internship, interns explore the community through field trips, and will work on a series of community design projects with their peers and highly trained design professionals. The experience leaves interns feeling more aware of the world around them, and motivated to make a change.
