Habitat's Women Build is a national initiative that gives women an opportunity to learn construction skills and work on home building projects. Locally, Habitat for Humanity of Champaign County hosts clinics on a semi-regular basis that focus on these skills.

On July 13th, they are hosting an Interior Home Maintenance clinic from 9 a.m. to noon at the Habitat for Humanity warehouse, 302 N. Broadway in Urbana. 

I am the first to admit that I am a "can't we pay someone to do that" type homeowner. DIY is not my thing. However, these are important things to know how to do: patch drywall, change out an electrical socket, fix the garbage disposal, stop your toilet from running. Those are the kinds of tasks this clinic will focus on. 

You will need to register here to reserve your spot. It's $20, and includes a t-shirt and snacks.
