Be Inspired | Do Good
Interview with Aaron Dykstra, Founder and Executive Director of The Making Foundation:
This week on Roanoke Podcast for Good, Hal speaks with Aaron Dykstra, Executive Director of The Making Foundation. Propelled forward to share the importance of manufacturing and the skilled trades, Aaron founded The Making Foundation, an after-school enrichment program that teaches hands-on, project-based learning. Prior to running a nonprofit, Aaron built and ran a hugely successful (and award-winning) small business as owner, designer and fabricator for 611 Bicycle Company and Hometown Manufacturing (his bicycles carried an 18-month waiting list!). Our conversation follows Aaron’s journey from decorated Air Force veteran, to small business owner to nonprofit director, dad, partner and passionate tinkerer.
