All wood used in the YOU woodshop is locally sourced and FSC Certified.
This ensures that the wood is sustainably harvested from non-genetically modified trees, endangered species and wildlife habitats are protected, and workers receive fair pay and incentives. It is very important to us to support businesses that meet rigorous environmental and social standards, commit to biodiversity conservation, and respect and encourage the well-being of their employees.
Under the supervision of an experienced carpenter, youth learn the stages of manufacturing wood products. From raw material to finished product, youth are part of a team that makes various wood products. Youth are trained in the principles of woodworking from basic to advanced and proper use of tools and machinery (including maintenance).
Available individually or included in one of our Gift Packages, our wood products make the perfect gifts for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, housewarming, or almost any other occasion.
