About Us

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.
