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

Our summer program supports that mission by opening CBB programming to other constituencies. CBB’s summer programs are open to all students aged 7-14 on a fee-for-service basis. Participants sign up for one-week experiences during the day that include a wooden boat building project, rowing on Fort Point Channel, and outdoor games. CBB plans to host 4 weeks of programming in the summer of 2022. Community Boat Building is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (www.tsne.org).
