We are proud to say that Sisters Rhythm and Brews Festival is not an all-for-profit company. The Festival will give back to the Sisters community by donating proceeds to local nonprofits and charities specializing in housing and empowering youth and families.
We at The Sisters Rhythm and Brews Festival have firsthand experience working in the building trades and have worked directly with the youth and volunteers at the Heart of Oregon. This program specializes in empowering our local youth by teaching them life skills and work ethic, all while earning a living wage.
The building trades are losing its workforce with baby boomers heading into retirement everyday. Training and employing our youth provides them with a sense of pride in their workmanship and encourages their self-sufficiency and security in a thriving career.
Affordable housing is a great need in Central Oregon and the local Habitat for Humanity assists those families that may not qualify for a traditional home loan. They bridge the gap between working families and home-ownership.
We are especially excited about the building standards they have recently adopted. Their pride in workmanship, the quality of materials, and the focus on energy efficiency will maintain affordable homes for many years to come.
Sisters GRO helps Sisters High Students interested in developing the community and private sector.
In 2019, we awarded a $500 scholarship to a very deserving young man. This year, we’re excited to offer two, $1,000 scholarships for students interested in building sciences or building trade school.
