WoodWORKS is a Launch program designed to provide young individuals with job experience and basic woodworking skills in order to earn store credit at their local skateshop. Through an application process, participants are selected by Launch staff to design and build a one-of-a-kind hardwood skateboard deck that will be sold to raise money for the next round of boards made by a new group of kids.
