giving an individual more confidence after learning a new skill. It is
especially exciting for young people to show off their work and efforts when
they build or make something on their own!
Join us as one of our former Big Brothers teaches us about
tool safety, basic woodworking skills, and helping us get started on building a
birdhouse! Space is limited, all ages are welcome and light snacks will be
