The Summit Lake Build Corps will pair youth in the Summit Lake neighborhood with experienced fabricators and builders in Akron to teach new skills and enable youth to create projects that add to the vibrancy of the neighborhood. Potential building projects include neighborhood information boards, signs, benches, little libraries, and even canoes to take out on the lake!


Youth get:

  • New skills in woodworking and fabrication

  • Chance to positively affect the neighborhood

  • Monetary stipend


Youth must:

  • Live or have connections to the Summit Lake neighborhood

  • Be between 12-22 years old

  • Be eager to learn and participate
