HOWB 175 – Interview | Pete Bergstrom on Starting G2G Wood and Boatworks Mentoring Program for Youth

by admin on May 28, 2015


Today’s podcast is an interview Pete Bergstrom of Monticello, IL. Pete has started G2G Wood and Boatworks in Monticello.

The G2G mission is to pass life experiences and values from “Generation to generation” (G2g) with adults leading the way in understanding the value of mentoring younger generations. Building wooden boats and learning woodworking skills will be the platform for mentoring youth ages 13 to 21.

Bergstrom is an avid woodworker and boatbuilder, and is excited about his new venture!
