Kayak Building Program
Our program involves 4-6 participants per build and is designed to be 2-4 hour sessions, 2-3 days a week, over 10-12 weeks. A typical day starts with house rules, followed by a work session, then light refreshments and 30 minutes Q&A, then another work session, and concludes with a shop cleanup. Current participants range from age 22-75. This build is volunteer-led by trained Veteran project leaders, and has paid Veteran peer support technicians that help oversee the program. There is no charge for our Veteran participants- the materials, supplies, tutorials, and end result kayak and paddle are free. The program is open to Veterans, regardless of rank, branch, or discharge status.
