CNYC’s full-service Woodshop / Carpentry gives our youth the chance to learn some basic essential skills. Youth can get trained in all aspects of entry level carpentry / woodworking and basic home repair, youth also receive a honouriam. The youth also learn essential soft skills such as punctuality, attendance, and respect in the workplace. At the same time they do get other training and opportunities such as First Aid Training, ASIST, WHMIS and participate on tours to construction sites & trade schools. The woodshop and workshops are overseen by our our Woodshop Coordinator, who provides safety training, hands-on guidance and creative mentorship for the youth.
The youth have a variety of projects to choose from including stools, meditation benches, balance boards, rain barrels, garden boxes, furniture and cutting boards. Not unlike our other programming, the carpentry and woodshop program intends to provide youth with experience and skills that are transferable to a vocation outside of CNYC. Completing projects also brings youth a strong sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and empowerment.
