Youth Program

It is the mission of the Greenville Woodworkers Guild to provide a safe learning and working environment in a dedicated area of the Education Center for use of the youth program participants. The program will provide developmentally appropriate practices and activities in which young woodworkers can work to develop skills and construct projects that exemplify an age appropriate understanding of woodworking and assist in the promotion of the physical, cognitive, social and creative development of the young woodworker as it relates to woodworking.

Parents must complete a Registration Consent Form and Liability Release Form.

All participants must adhere to all Rules and Regulations of the Greenville Woodworkers Guild and the Youth Program.
