Update on Leadership at Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory

The Board of the Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory (PWBF) announces the departure of Brett Hart, Executive Director, effective April 13th 2018.

The PWBF is a unique and special organization in Philadelphia’s Out of School Time sector, is a vital civic asset for the community and offers a transformative experience for many young people in Frankford.

Brett’s vision, dedication and talent growing PWBF into the well-respected organization it is today serving the young people of Frankford is acknowledged and greatly appreciated by the Board.

The Board is fully activated to manage the transition and is unanimous in our praise for the amazing PWBF staff who continue to bring excellence in their work and to the lives and aspirations of the young people they serve. The PWBF is privileged to serve youth of Frankford and will do its very best to ensure that their experience and ambitions are met and we don’t miss a beat.

Thank you to our young people, parents, guardians, partners, stakeholders and entire Frankford community for their ongoing support, especially at this time of transition as the Board fully explores all options.

The Board wishes Brett Hart well for the future.
