Bid It To Win It;
Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory provides multi-year, return-to-apprenticeship projects in which high school teens build and competitively sail traditional wooden boats. Working with raw and aromatic materials like cedar, oak, and douglas fir, student apprentices build the organization’s custom designed, 13-foot Factory One-Design sailboats with small groups of their peers. Each completed boat is added to the organization’s Community Yacht Club, where apprentices learn to sail alongside one another on the quiet northern Delaware River. The apprenticeship model helps youth build competencies, and supportive connections with their peers and adults. Resiliency, individual agency, confidence, and empathy are our factory’s products.
