Mission Statement

Annapolis Family BoatBuilding provides an opportunity to bring together groups that normally would not associate. The building process brings together people with enormous variations in skill level. For adults it provides rewards of working with young people and for youth an opportunity to complete a project from start to finish and an introduction to sailing. The event involves families and kids working together building a wooden boat and an opportunity for an introduction to sailing that will provide the job skills, life skills, and self-esteem many of these kids never had before.

The theme behind the event is that ordinary people -- families can, with the proper instruction, build their own boat in a matter of days. No prior woodworking or boat building expertise is required.

The event involves families and kids working together building a wooden boat and an opportunity for an introduction to sailing that will provide the job skills, life skills, and self-esteem many of these kids never had before. Never before has a need been as great as now in the Annapolis community for a program such as this to reach out to kids and families. All we need is your help to get this great community-benefiting project going.

The program is not a handout, but a hand up towards ownership. Every family pays towards the cost of the boat.

Description
