Mission

Urban Boatbuilders empowers youth to succeed in work and life through woodworking and experiential learning. 

Programs

The Apprenticeship Program is a paid employment training program, providing opportunities to youth in the community who are most underserved. More than 50 youth every year learn technical skills related to boatbuilding, attend workshops on financial literacy, mock interviewing, and resume building, and participate in on-water activities and wilderness trips using the boats they've built.

Through the Partnership Program, Urban Boatbuilders teams up with middle schools, high schools, and community organizations across the Twin Cities to engage students in the boatbuilding process. Youth learn, practice, and apply academic concepts in a challenging and innovative hands-on environment that effectively complements classroom learning. Projects build the 21st Century, Social-Emotional, and Leadership Skills of youth as attainable goals that ultimately lead to a finished boat and immense pride.

Your Funding . . .

Your donation will support our youth empowerment programming. With your support, we will continue to do what we do best: building youth, one boat at a time!

Thank you for your support!
