This unique event brings together student teams from Fresno State University’s Lyles College of Engineering, Craig School of Business, and the Department of Art and Design to tackle real-world nonprofit facility challenges in their own community.
This year students will be working on a proposed Children’s Safety Village in Fresno, which provides hands-on life-safety education to young children and their families in Fresno. A scaled down town provides a safe and fun environment for children to learn about and practice safety skills. Safety lessons may include pedestrian safety, fire safety, crime prevention, and “stranger-danger”. The town is also a venue for community events and can be rented for parties.
Each team designs a portion of the proposed Children’s Safety Village consisting of an Administration/City Hall building, the exterior of three “small” Village buildings and the site plan to accommodate the buildings. Students will design both the interior and exterior of the Administration/City Hall building. The Administration building will house offices for staff, visitor information and ticket area, restrooms, and classroom/large gathering space.
The Fresno Community Facilities Challenge, now in its 7th year, immerses students in direct, hands-on experience, supporting their career development. Read this story to learn about how the program creates pathways for Fresno students.
