A Trade Of A Lifetime

Mike, Sherry, and Michael Holmes take on a project that is close to their hearts when 18-year-old Riley asks for their help to save her school’s skilled trades program. As the Holmes family transforms three rundown classrooms, they also wear their teachers’ hats to give the kids a chance to learn from the pros. The trio and Riley also give back to her extraordinary teacher, Mr. Meleca, as a special thank you for helping to change the students’ lives. With a class full of future trades professionals, it’s a special project for the Holmes family. This episode features a celebrity guest appearance from school alumnus Russell Peters.
