ASF’s signature program is a Boat Building Apprenticeship Program, an nationally recognizes workforce readiness program which helps at-risk youth, between the ages of 18-22, acquire the job and social skills necessary to secure well-paying, career-path jobs.  These skills and competencies, along with improved attitude and increased self-esteem, allow these youth to enter the workforce and become responsible, productive members of society.  ASF has improved the lives of hundreds of youth through this program, serving an average of 40 young men and women annually.  Along with career and woodworking skills, apprentices improve their academic competencies (reading, math, and history) through project-based learning and in the context of traditional wooden boat building.
