  • Overview

    Community Boat Building’s (CBB) (www.communityboatbuilding.org) mission is to bring real world experience and academic skills together to stimulate an excitement for learning among low-income students in Boston Public Schools through boat building and coastal experiences.


    Our programs help underserved students connect in-classroom learning with a tangible project, making learning real and relevant. The skills they develop have a transformative impact that is transferable to school, future employment, and throughout life. Taking students out of their classroom and engaging them in hands-on learning makes their world bigger and brings learning to life.
