Our Mission:

Our Mission Is To Provide Access To Traditional And Advanced Tools, A Large Space And A Variety Of Skill Sets In A Collaborative And Innovative Environment That Enables Our Members And Community To Create What Matters.

Our Impact:

  1. Empowering At-Risk Youth: Our initiatives for at-risk youth have been the guiding light towards new paths and brighter futures. We’ve mentored and supported young makers, helping them discover their potential and providing the resources they need to ignite passion.
  2. Igniting Creativity at Summer Camps: Our summer camps are more than just fun; they ignite the creative spark in the minds of young makers. We foster a nurturing environment where children can explore their creativity, learn new skills, and grow as individuals.
  3. Building Stronger Communities: Our team-building programs have played a pivotal role in strengthening bonds and fostering cooperation among diverse groups. We actively work to bring people together through a diverse array of unique creative opportunities.
  4. Supporting Our Heroes: We take pride in providing a therapeutic outlet for our wounded soldiers. Through our programs, we offer a safe space for healing and recovery, ensuring that our heroes receive the support they deserve.
  5. Creating Pathways to Success: We’ve made a significant impact on the lives of low-income residents by lifting them into good-paying careers. Through training, education, and mentorship, we open doors to opportunities that lead to financial stability.
  6. Enriching Education: We’ve partnered with schools to enrich their curriculums, offering programs that inspire and engage students through hands on learning opportunities and demonstrations. We’re committed to supporting the next generation of leaders.
  7. Supporting Nonprofits: Our commitment to making a difference extends beyond our organization. We actively support other nonprofits in their missions to create positive change, because together, we can achieve so much more.
  8. Engaging the Community: We’re not just about behind-the-scenes work. You’ll find us actively participating in parades, street fairs, and county fairs where we engage the public with hands-on making opportunities that inspire new passions.
