Scholarship Fundraiser FUN!

SK8orDIY SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER

In an effort to maintain our mission of affordable access, we are creating the SNTL Scholarship Fund, whereby anyone may apply to take any of our classes completely free of charge, based on financial need and desire.

The SK8orDIY Fundraiser will be a celebration of community, art, music, and thinking outside the box! Proceeds from raffle ticket sales and the silent auction will go directly into the Fund, making learning opportunities a reality for kids and adults in our community.

Why is this important, you ask?  Our society is experiencing a disconnect from hand-craft skills like woodworking or even basic home maintenance.  We’ve gone from being hardy pioneer, true DIYers, to just calling a professional or buying it on Amazon.  However, there has been a resurgence of interest in learning those skills and re-igniting the do-it-yourself spirit.  For some, this has become a hobby, for others it is out of financial necessity.  For everyone, it should be an available opportunity!
