CNYC’s full-service Woodshop / Carpentry gives our youth the chance to learn some basic skills. Youth can get trained in all aspects of entry level carpentry and receive a honouriam. 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, yoga blocks 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.
