Waterside Workshops
"We provide job-training, classes, and recreation
opportunities for local youth while offering services to the
community including a bicycle shop and repair facility, a full
service wooden boat building shop, and Berkeley's only
waterfront coffee shop."


Waterside Workshops uses vocational education as a method of promoting
youth development, encouraging sustainable and healthy lifestyles, and
cultivating positive change in the Bay Area community.

We also offer classes for youth and adults.
