Description

Revolution Workshop is a nonprofit organization that connects unemployed and underemployed adults with careers in construction.

Revolution Workshop aims to bring the wealth of the trades back to the local community by connecting residents with sustainable, skilled careers. The organization also helps reclaim local lumber by partnering with their neighbor, Great Lakes Yard.
