The Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory is a maritime education organization whose mission is to engage the city's youth through hands-on, experiential programming inspired by the heritage of the sea. Operating out of a newly renovated light industrial site in the heart of Frankford, our boatbuilding and sailing programs which include school day, afterschool, and summer sessions -- help middle and high school age students develop self-esteem, improve academically, and learn valuable real life lessons. Research shows that kids learn best by doing. When they have meaningful opportunities to make vital connections between what they learn in the classroom and what happens in the real world, they become more engaged and successful students.
