Building Boats and Dreams
Urban Boatbuilders is a social enterprise that works to empower underserved youth in the Twin Cities to succeed in work and life through woodworking and experiential learning. Their programs are a way for youth to learn essential life skills outside of the traditional classroom setting
Through its Partnership Program, Urban Boatbuilders provides a mobile hands-on learning and problem solving experience through a semester-long interactive boat building experience. This unique opportunity is made available to schools and nonprofits looking for new and exciting learning opportunities for its students or constituents, and the Foundation was proud to help them expand their efforts.
At Urban Boatbuilders, these youth aren’t just building boats, they are building skills to turn their dreams into reality.
