The Apprenticeship Program:
The Urban Boatbuilders Apprenticeship Program is an enrichment opportunity where youth learn how to build boats, paddles and other woodworking projects. In addition to project-based learning, apprentices participate in offsite career exploration field trips, and workshops on resume writing, personal finance, interviewing, and goal setting.
Apprentices start at $9.50 an hour, and have opportunities to receive increases over time.
See the apprentices in action on our facebook page.
