The Craftsman & Apprentice is dedicated to being an inclusive environment. We love and respect people regardless of ability, socioeconomic status, religion, gender identity, race, ethnicity, immigration status or language and are committed to creating and fostering a learning environment that is accessible, diverse and respectful. We believe that making things in community is good for people and that all people deserve access to high quality creative and practical craft experiences.
It is our goal to make at least 20% of our programming accessible to traditionally marginalized communities.
How we meet this goal
+ We offer programs in partnership with schools and organizations that serve traditionally under-served groups including people of color, those experiencing poverty, people living with disabilities, and LGBTQ community members.
+ We provide programs at free or reduced cost to individual families, participants, schools, and non-profit groups.
+ We partner with a foundation that generously supports partnership scholarships and program funding to schools and organizations with a functioning 501c3. This foundation partnership allows us to cover our instructor and material costs while reducing or removing the costs of programming to the participants.
+ We communicate closely with our clients and their caregivers to develop curriculum and work spaces that meet the diverse needs of our program participants.
