On Thursday, January 12, the program director and co-founder of Sawhorse Revolution visited the 9th grade Humanities classes. Sawhorse Revolution is a Seattle based nonprofit dedicated to making tiny houses for people experiencing homelessness. Their mission statement is, “to foster confident, community-oriented youth through the power of carpentry and craft.”

Sawhorse Revolution works with youth from a variety of backgrounds to teach them about the basic skills of carpentry to build these houses alongside professionals. They offer many different programs, some after school and some throughout the summer, as well as a specifically all-girls program.
