Community Boat Building brings critical academic subjects and skills — math, science, social studies, spatial thinking, reading and writing — to life with experiential learning opportunities for low-income children in Boston Public Schools. The core concept of the program revolves around wooden rowboats that are built in our shop in teams of 5-6 students each. In addition, we also draw on the outstanding natural features of Boston and its rich history to bring learning to life. Since its founding in 2007, CBB has worked with over 1,000 students in Boston.
All of our programs are integrated tightly with the Boston Public Schools curriculum so that learning and enthusiasm translates back to the classroom and makes a lasting impact on educational outcomes.
