Working inside NYC schools, Brooklyn Boatworks helps young people develop life skills through the building and use of small boats. Our programs teach communication, teamwork, perseverance and craftsmanship, and help young people create a strong connection to their urban environment.
The mission of Brooklyn Boatworks is to encourage, inspire and empower young people through the unique craft of wooden boatbuilding and on-the-water experiences. We teach and promote the values of learning by doing, cooperation, perseverance and craftsmanship.
We envision a New York City where all children have the opportunity to experience the rewards, accomplishments and thrill of hand crafting and sailing their own boat.
