At New Beginnings Store/Work and Training Center, we have a mission and vision to provide training opportunities to teach skills that will empower program participants and employees to learn, grow and be productive members of the community.

New Beginnings Store/Work and Training Center offers on-the-job training opportunities for youth and cognitively challenged adults. We engage at-risk youth in work experiences including job shadowing, company tours, mock interviews, volunteer projects and guest speakers. We provide career and work readiness exercises and assistance with obtaining high school diploma, enrollment and attendance in post-secondary education or training. We practice work and life skills such as customer service, work-place math, business communication, active listening, workplace expectations and career preparation. Necessary resources and supports for future success are provided.
New Beginnings relies heavily on donations and fundraising throughout each year. In order to operate efficiently, we need to hold several fundraisers throughout the year so we can continue to serve the population who are most in need.
