What We Do
The Shop is a fully equipped multi-trade mentoring and skills training center located in Newmarket. Our trained and qualified staff invite youth aged 15-25 to learn various skills in a personalized, safe environment. Our youth
- Gain experience in basic automotive, small engines, CNC machine operation, carpentry, welding, detailing, electrical, and other trades.
- Get help building their resume.
- Get help finding a job.
- Accumulate volunteer community service hours for school, court, or their resume.
- Receive one-to-one life skills mentoring.
Our program is funded in part through a vehicle donation program, where vehicles of all kinds are donated in exchange for a tax receipt, and resold to generate revenue that keeps this place running! Some cars are selected and brought into our shop to be fully refurbished.
The Shop is a program of Youth Unlimited, a registered charity, and has been operating in Newmarket since 2003. For details on our parent charity, click the links for Youth Unlimited on the footers of this page.
