Sawhorse Revolution is a carpentry program for diverse high school youth. Sawhorse works with students to become resourceful, conscientious, and mature members of their communities through collaboration with professional builders on inspiring projects. Each fall and spring, Sawhorse undertakes new building projects rooted in Seattle's urban communities. Students work in crews to remodel or build new structures in local schools, non-profits, and small businesses. Currently, Sawhorse students, builders, and designers are working on two micro-houses for the Nickelsville homeless community.
