Brooklyn Boatworks provides young people in 5th through 12th grades in New York City with access to a high quality boat building and waterfront education program that is academically challenging and nurtures talents, skills, and interests.

The process of building a boat by hand teaches young people how to cooperate, take pride in their work, develop leadership skills, solve problems and take responsibility for their own learning. Learning to sail, conducting water tests, buoyancy exercises, nautical knot tying, and multiple waterfront field trips reinforce the hands-on learning that takes place in the Brooklyn Boatworks classroom.
