YMakers is a comprehensive STEAM and Youth Development program that puts tools in kids hands and ideas in their heads. At each YMakers workshop kids and adults get hands-on experience with basic woodworking and crafting tools while they build and make whatever they can dream up! Thoughtful, responsible, and SAFE Making are at the heart of everything we do, so we open each session with practices that introduce and ingrain lifelong safety habits in our Makers.
Past participant projects have included toys and games, gifts for others, home decor, tables and chairs, shelves for school lockers, door signs, pencil holders, tiny beds for stuffed animals, and much much more! We are working to develop YMakers into a permanent program at the Presidio Y, and your child can help by putting their hands and minds to work building up our workshop!
