“The program has surpassed my expectations. Brooklyn Boatworks provides different opportunities for different students.  For some it is a place where students can find success for the first time, for others it's a place to develop skills and confidence.”

- Abbie Sewell, Teacher Partner
“Brooklyn Boatworks gave me a sense of possibility. Building a boat made me understand that something that wasn’t necessarily easy or small was do-able. Seeing our project floating in the Hudson River, well, wow. I felt that if I could do this, I could more.  That type of thinking leads to progress."

- Jovon Ferguson, boatbuilding graduate
“Brooklyn Boatworks has had a profound effect on our students.  One young woman, in particular, stands out. She’s now able to collaborate with peers, demonstrates self-control in social and academic settings and has mastered math concepts that she’s been working on for years (measurement, comparing and order fractions, etc.).  She’s also reached two of her personal goals: building and sailing a boat!”

- Liz Runco, Teacher Partner
"Every time I speak to students about the program, there is overt enthusiasm, an emergent smile, and great reflection on how lucky they are to be part of this unique program.  When I have the opportunity to speak with their parents, they are so grateful that their children - urban youth in a seemingly landlocked world - can have such amazing experiences, thanks to Brooklyn Boatworks and their generosity."

- Scill Chan, High School Director
“Brooklyn Boatworks was the highlight of my son’s year; it kept him interested and focused in school like nothing else!”

- Kate Ryan, Mom to Amyas
