The Forge partners with other regional nonprofit organizations to empower and inspire folks to pursue careers in the skilled trades. Through intensive skills bootcamps and mentoring, these students learn the basics in welding or machining.
Our current partners are referred through the United Way.
We offer discounted or free memberships to students, retirees, public servants, active military, and veterans. Apply to see if you qualify!
Shop Mentors are an integral part of what keeps the Forge running! These volunteers lead orientations, teach classes regularly, maintain our equipment, and keep office hours to be available to members and staff to help out. In exchange, Shop Mentors get valuable teaching experience and learn marketable skills that are easily translatable to their personal and professional lives.
Highly visible on the corner of Eugene Street/Gate City Boulevard intersection, 36,000 daily commuters will be greeted with a curated rotation of surprisingly uplifting, humorous and thought-provoking texts. Eventually, we plan to turn this into an LED billboard that can change instantly. For now, it functions as physical letters on a marquee.
This project was made possible through a generous Spark Grant! from Action Greensboro and Downtown Greensboro Inc. and is maintained in partnership with the Greensboro Project Space.
While we offer a lot of the physical tools to help entrepreneurs create and operate their businesses, we also aim to connect them to other great services to help them succeed. Check out the Entrepreneur Ecosystem in the Triad Navigator (its free!)
