Mission Statement

Build Repair Grow teaches young people hands-on, practical skills in growing food, cooking, repairing bikes, sewing, and basic carpentry while developing increased resiliency, critical thinking, and problem solving techniques through project-based learning. The elimination of home arts and shop classes from schools has created a gap that Build Repair Grow helps fill.

Description

Build Repair Grow teaches young people how to grow and cook food, basic carpentry, sewing, and bike repair. We provide young people with training in practical skills critical for building individual resiliency, problem-solving, and self-sufficiency while promoting community health. Our programs were developed with a focus on in-person, hands-on learning. but due to the current pandemic, we have pivoted to provide take home project kits and online instructional videos. Incorporated in February of 2020, Build Repair Grow has established the organizational, strategic and intellectual infrastructure to plan and launch no-cost and low-cost programs throughout Western Mass. As our organization prepares to move past the initial start up phase and scale up our activities, seek major funding, and hire staff we are looking for three new Board members - a Treasurer, Communications Chair, and Grants and Fundraising Chair - who can help shape the organization as we take it to the next level.
