About This Activity

Come join us this fall for a fun after school program in the New Pathways Boat Shop. This fall we will be offering students the opportunity to learn how to build a boat in the shop. Working in a boat shop is synonymous with being part of a family or team, everyone has a role to play and skills are learned one at a time building upon the previous skill. With each additional tool placed in the toolbox the learner becomes more competent and capable. Eventually the learner becomes the teacher, and the roles are repeated. Students in the New Pathways Boat Shop will have the opportunity to be both teacher and student. Learning the skills required to build a boat is like learning the skills required to succeed in life, critical thinking, planning, problem solving, effective communication, goal setting, time management, teamwork are all necessary when you work in a boat shop. The Herreshoff Marine Museum provides a Fall Boat Building Program incorporating career exploration, work experiences, leadership development, adult mentoring. By participating in the program students increase their marine trades-specific knowledge: boat design, blue print reading, boat-building, carpentry, tool-handling/use, and 21st Century skills: critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, communication, planning and goal setting that are transferable to other fields. Our program increases youths’ awareness of employment opportunities by exposing them to multiple career pathways within the marine trades industry and informing them on the skills that employers are seeking in their work force. Students will also also receive information on post-secondary schools they can attend to learn the skills that the employers are looking for. Our large boat shop is perfect for social distancing and allows for students to maintain a safe distance while working on the project. Masks, hand washing and daily cleaning will be used to keep everyone safe. Questions? Email Kirk Cusic at k.cusic@herreshoff.org
