The Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory teaches urban youth about boat building, but it also engages them in practices that teach them communication skills, empathy, teamwork, and how to develop individual agency.

Instruction provided by SRL Connected Educator Josh Kleiman. Station support is provided by Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich and Elis Estrada of PBS NewsHour, and WHYY.
