This program will offer students that have been placed on out of school suspension, at-risk youth that have dropped out of school, or those simply looking for a place to hang out absent the influences of illegal substance use, a constructive, educational and artful safe haven. This program will provide artful offerings... beginning with a refinishing wood furniture series and moving on to other artful programs our membership finds curious such as photography, video and film, painting etc.
It is our vision that this "project workshop" provide a safe haven & substance abuse prevention environment for mentoring youth. There is a need for an educational supportive environment in order for members to stay on course with school assignments and as well, complete a GED program for those not having completed high school. Additionally life coaching, financial responsibility and legal aide mentors will be available for members and their families. Seminars, skills related training classes, resume building, volunteerism and corporate mentorship are all within the realm of inclusion. It is our intention to allow the program to evolve based on its members and their artful interests through wood restoration projects and other available art offerings.
The WOOD U? Project will seek to engage, carpenters, artists, restoration experts and knowledgeable and professional and skilled volunteers that can benefit the programs mission. WOOD U? will produce a small amount of self-sustaining revenue once completely in place. Grants and donors, both individual and corporate are needed to provide funding for rent, insurance, and equipment in order to continue our efforts to build the most effective program.
