What if you are designing and building custom homes, coping with a labor shortage, and then realize you can do something about it?
That's what Scott Simpson and several others decided to do.
Revolution Workshop is a social enterprise that provides construction and woodworking workforce development for unemployed or underemployed people in partnership with area businesses.
Revolution Workshop was created from witnessing lives transformed through hand-crafted woodwork. With the ongoing, dire labor shortage in the skilled trades, Scott and his associates decided to build a best-in-class construction training program fused with a custom furniture social enterprise. Its goal is simple: help solve an ongoing labor-demand issue for skilled trades employers, while transforming lives at the same time. The workshop provides free pre-apprenticeship programs in construction and woodworking.
