We are a 501c3 non-profit mentoring program for young men 7th through 12th grade.
Walking Tall provides compassionate life coaching to young men grade 7-12 by establishing permanent connections with Christian faith-based mentorship, and by building personal respect, integrity and character through job-readiness skills.
Kids are always looking for role models to imitate, but many are growing up without positive relationships where they have no good role models to follow. Our Walking Tall mentoring program provides young men long term authentic relationships with adults that form the foundation for healthy influence.
Walking Tall Southern Oregon (WT) is pleased to announce the creation of a new woodshop venture: WT Redwood Products. Our venture is being supported by one of southern Oregon’s retired businesses which have served customers nationwide for decades.
Gold Hill Redwood Products LLC has been handcrafting redwood outdoor furniture since 1982. Owners Sandy and Sharon Lee are retiring. They have graciously allowed Walking Tall to modify our campus woodshop to include equipment, materials, and labor expertise used from their business to create outdoor redwood furniture and accessory products.
As we merge this new business into our daily operations, WT will train up and employ young men who have shown skills in being coachable, attentive to detail, practicing safety guidelines, and demonstrating respect for their workplace. WT will hire these young men under the supervision of our woodworking mentors to fulfill product orders. As an added benefit, all profits from customer sales will support our teen mentoring mission.
Consequently, October 2021 will be the target date for Walking Tall to accept orders for select Redwood outdoor furniture in limited accessories (for details, please check out our website wtredwood.com for updates.)
To continue the fine tradition of Gold Hill Redwood products LLC, we will complete orders by using clear Redwood materials of various maturities – as long as supplies last!
WT is grateful to Sandy and Sharon Lee for their desire to help support this new venture and their encouragement to train up the next generation of wood craftsmen.
