Why a crew of Philly educators are taking their kids down to the river

The Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory wants students to become captains of their own destinies.

Jesus Castro is carefully explaining to a handful of teenagers the process of riveting the curved wooden ribs to the hull of the boat. It’ll take several of the kids working at once: two on the inside of the boat, one on the outside. Castro shows them each step, demonstrating in the air how the copper rivet pieces fit together, how the drill should be angled, when to use the hammer, where the person holding the stop should be.

His crew, looking on in their school uniforms, aren’t entirely convinced. “Would you say this process is scientifically accurate?” one pipes up, adjusting her glasses.

Castro shrugs and gives a patient smile. “It’s worked on boats for centuries. But you give it a shot—see if it works.”

Somewhat reassured by the historical tradition, if not the engineering details, the five young boat builders set to work. There’s a learning curve as they try each task, swapping off roles, each trying to find what best suits. One girl, faced with clipping excess wire from the rivet, demurs, saying she doesn’t have the strength and a boy should do it. After pounding in a couple of rivets, however, she catches the rhythm, and starts clipping off the wire herself.

When they’re done, the rivets are loose. So are the boat’s ribs, which were steamed and bent into place by another group of students. The kids will have to redo some of this work if the vessel is to be river-worthy by launch day later this summer. But in the face of one girl awakening to her own sense of power, fixing a few rivets is such a small thing.

Suffice it to say, boats are not the only thing the Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory is interested in building.


The Wooden Boat Factory,
started in 1996, aims to give economically disadvantaged teenagers opportunities to develop not only practical skills but also their sense of self.

The group offers two programs: Boat Build & Sail and Community Row Riverguides. Build & Sail teaches kids hands-on boatbuilding and sailing, while Riverguides is focused on ecology, offering a chance to learn about the Delaware River and its environment. Both are based around an apprenticeship model, with the students working closely with the staff and instructors. The students come from Marianna Bracetti Academy, Frankford High School, Carver High School and Constitution High School.

The Factory’s executive director, Brett Hart, grew up only a few blocks from the organization’s Frankford location inside the old Globe Dye Works building; he’s an experienced sailor, with the anchor tattoo to prove it. “We consider ourselves to be a strength-based program,” he says, “which means we’re finding opportunities for young people to make contributions... It’s about having young people become owners of their own processes of change—to help them figure out the solutions to their own problems.”

That approach to self-directed experience has earned the Wooden Boat Factory recognition from the Susan Crown Exchange, a Chicago-based education philanthropy. The Factory recently won $100,000 as part of the SCE’s Social and Emotional Learning Challenge; over the next 18 months, the group will be working with Detroit’s Weikart Center for Youth Program Policy. Weikart will evaluate the Philadelphia program, looking for commonalities between it and seven other groups that also received the award. SCE’s goal is to create a “field guide” to help inform future organizations in the best practices in social and emotional learning; it’s a big deal for the Wooden Boat Factory to be involved.

For Castro, the Factory’s artist in residence, the therapeutic qualities of building boats came to him years ago, working with Camden Maritime Museum. “Kids in Camden, the water kind of made them an island,” he says. “They didn’t cross the bridge into Philly, they weren’t coming over into South Street on a Friday. And then, on the other side, the Cooper River kind of separated them from Collingswood, Haddonfield and the nicer suburbs. I’d never put that together that the water was something that separated them.”

A boat, he realized, offered kids in that position a new kind of freedom. “It can take you somewhere that you can’t get to by walking or riding your bike, or catching the bus, or taking the train,” he says. “It can take you somewhere else.”


The backbone of the Wooden Boat Factory’s
philosophy—the keel, if you will, around which the hull is built—is the idea of “failing well.” Most teenagers’ experiences with failure come through an academic setting, where a failing grade is seen as catastrophic and irreparable. The Factory, Hart explains, takes a more positive, realistic approach: Doing something wrong is how you learn how important it is to do it right.

He remembers one young woman who had crafted a sailboat’s coaming—the raised edging around the place where you sit. She’d taken great care in shaping and finishing the wood to fit the deck. The trick was that this piece of wood was not going to be painted, it was going to be varnished—which meant if she left any imperfections, the varnish would make them stand out, clear as day.

“She was sanding it and sanding it,” Hart says. “And she came to me said, ‘Brett, am I done sanding?’ I get this question all the time: ‘Am I done? Am I done?’… So I said, ‘This is your piece, on your boat. You have to decide. Are you happy with it?’ Now, I know she doesn’t have any experience to draw on. She’s like ‘Well—umm—maybe not.” So she sands it further and sands it further, and she keeps bringing it to me and I size it up, and I can see the scratches that are going against the grain. I tell her, at some point you’re going to have to make a decision.”

She decided to varnish it, and the consequences of her impatience showed; the scratches were clearly visible.

“Her failure was that she varnished a piece of wood that went on the boat that didn’t have a ‘yacht standard’ to it,” Hart says. “But in actuality, she got a chance, through reflection, to look at it and say, ‘Geez, now I get why I should have spent the extra hour to get this done right.’ Without failing at something, there’s not the opportunity to learn. It’s not what we’re going to tell you as a student, because that’s—pfffft.” Hart flashes a hand over his head. “That’s gone. You have to fail.“

Victoria Guidi agrees. “It’s okay,” the Factory’s program director tells kids, bringing a calm, Zen-like vibe to the often chaotic workshop. “Try again.” Guidi’s been sailing all of her life. Like Castro, she gives the students the right tools, makes sure they’re shown the right methods—but is careful to see them take charge of their own work. When this semester’s over, she wants these kids to sail on boats they built themselves, not ones she built for them.


Nobody understands that better
than Andrew Cintron, the group’s program assistant. Cintron was a student at El Centro De Estudiante, an alternative high school in Kensington, when he first took part in Boat Builders a few years ago. His apprenticeship at the Wooden Boat Factory motivated him to him to finish school—and now his experience makes him an invaluable member of the staff.

He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself, my life became very bitter and sorrowful. Then 1 day, a friend of mine told me about a great spell caster that is very good and, he said he gave him some lucky numbers that he played in a lottery and he won. I didn't believe it because I've worked with so many of them and it didn't work. He begged me further so I decided to try this great spell caster called DR OBEYED. I still didn't believe. I used the spell he gave me and the next day I received a call from my darling husband Thomas last month. He apologized and came back to me. He even gave me 10,000USD as a means of compensating me.

This is my testimony about the good work of a man who helped me..My name is NINA GEORGE. and I base in London.My life is back!!! After 8 years of marriage, my husband left me and left me with our three kids. I felt like my life was about to end,and was falling apart. Thanks to a spell caster called papa Justus who i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I was searching for a good spell caster that can solve my problems. I came across series of testimonies about this particular spell caster.

“My Name is Carlos Robinson..I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster My wife divorce me with no reason for almost 4 years and i tried all i could to have her back cos i really love her so much but all my effort did not work out.. we met at our early age at the college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 5 years with no kid and she woke up one morning and she told me she’s going on a divorce..i thought it was a joke and when she came back from work she tender to me a divorce letter and she packed all her loads from our home.



I almost ran mad and i tried all i could to have her back but all did not work out..i was lonely for almost 4 years…So when i told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for her full name and her picture..i gave him that..At first i was skeptical but i gave it a try bcos have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution…so when he finished with the read”

Need a spell caster?then think of DR,OBEYED he is real reliable and he does what he promise you.I know all this because he helped with my marriage problem.For security reason i will not live my name here but i can tell you all he did to help me.Me and my family live in the US military base here in America,my wife is a solider and i love it that she is and i support.But being a solider means she is half my wife and fully the U.S army.before her three tour we were so in love and we had a kid son who we both love him.It all changed after her two tour in Iraq and Afghanistan,i noticed the distance her second tour she stopped call at first i thought maybe she was part of an accident but i found out that she was OK in Afghanistan.She explained that she always on patrol.It got ugly on the third. I guess in the last two tours she found herself a new lover and then totally forgetting me and our boy.I can not say i did not notice because she always has to be some where instead of with me,coming up with some silly excuse not to be with me that is ( have sex ) and her entire behavior told me all i needed to know. i did my research and i had a hint that it was her squad lieutenant.I had know evidence so a could not take the matter to any body.It killed me to seeing this happen i was going suicidal.What hurt me the most was she going home knowing that i suspect she infidelity,she kept lying to me over and over again.The power of positive thinking helped me a lot.I thought that maybe i can find in the help on the internet with the people who had being in the same problem with him.I found a lot of ways but nor worked except DR,OBEYED spell.At that time five month ago i was so confused that i could do anything to get my wife back so i contacted DR,OBEYED with his email address i saw in some comment on the internet at drobeyedspellcaster@gmail.coml.co m.I laid down my problem to him and told him the entire story and he even confirmed my hint was right, how he did i do not know but he was right because my wife told me later after the spell was made effective. DR,OBEYED cast a spell on them both do not know what he did but it seem he made them both forget they ever crossed path romantically speaking like they never know each other expect there official relationship that is squad leader and solider.I owe my life to DR,OBEYED what he did saved my marriage.I can tell you this because i have tried and it worked for me.Your case also have a solution with DR,OEYED contact him with his email: drobeyedspellcaster@gmail.com
