Recent JDI EMBA Grads Working with Habitat for Humanity

Helping to grow the “ReStore” revenues.

A team of recent JDI EMBA graduates has begun work with members of Habitat for Humanity Saint John.   Their collective goal is to grow the ReStore revenues, allowing for the construction of three new homes per year by 2015.

  • The ReStore relies on donations and volunteers to operate.
