The Hollygrove Chair Project


There’s something about a guy and power tools.  That’s why TCC uses carpentry as a means of mentoring teen students.  Using an architect-designed chair which was vetted through a community design process, the Hollygrove Chair Project is a unique way of teaching young men about the Christ-centered life through a hands-on building project.

Each chair is cut, constructed and painted by hand.  For each chair constructed, one is donated.  So, while the young men learn entrepreneurship, they also learn philanthropy.  Furthermore, the chair is given to seniors of the community with the expectation that it be used as a crime-deterrent (as a concrete representation that someone in the house is aware of crime in the community).

So, you have mentorship, entrepreneurship, crime reduction, philanthropy and Christian leadership development rolled into one project.

To purchase your Hollygrove Chair or to donate the cost of a chair (each costs us $15.00 USD), contact us via email or by phone at 504-482-7822.  It’s a great way to help a young man become a community leader.
