The Alexandria Seaport Foundation (ASF) is a nonprofit organization on the historic Alexandria waterfront which uses boat building and boat-building skills to educate and train at-risk youth. ASF’s primary initiative is the Boat Building Apprenticeship Program, a full-time boat building apprenticeship for young people ages 18-22. Through experiential, project-based learning and adult mentoring, youth learn mathematics, and career and life skills. Additionally, ASF partners with local public schools for STEM on the Potomac, teaching students math and carpentry skills through hands-on projects.
