The Hudson River Maritime Museum needs your help in funding our amazing YouthBoat program. We offer this program for free to local teens, teaching them basic shop skills as they build wooden boats in focused, full-semester classes.
The Hudson River Maritime Museum has partnered with Ulster BOCES and Kingston High School to ensure that the students who wish to do so receive high school credit for this class. This program is offered free of charge and no student is turned away. However, the cost of this program is $1,250 per student per semester, or approximately $75 per week for each student. We need your help to ensure that we can continue to offer this important and innovative program. Please donate at any level to support YouthBoat and the students whose lives are forever changed by the skills they learn. Thank you!
