May 5, 2016: My Brother’s Workshop is holding an open house and ribbon cutting on May 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at their location next to Tutu Mall to showcase their expansion into two new training fields: welding and manufacturing.

Founded in 2007, My Brother’s Workshop has helped over 500 youth find hope and take steps towards obtaining their goals through mentoring, counseling, education, paid on-the-job training and job placement.

Now the non-profit is increasing their capacity to train more of our youth by adding two new skills to their successful training programs.  With the addition of welding and manufacturing, trainees will be able to learn about the art of welding and the world of merchandising through manufacturing. 

“We are always wanting to increase our number of kids we see each year.  Plus, we are giving the youth more options to choose from that will give them more chances to succeed in life.  We want them to love what they are learning.  We want them to find their passion,” said My Brother’s Workshop Executive Director Jenny Hawkes.  “When we help these young people, we see hope alive.”

At the ceremony, My Brother’s Workshop plans to announce a new partnership with Kym’s Kids Caribbean, a non-profit focused on developing volunteerism and strengthening education with young people.  While My Brother’s Workshop already engages in both community service and education, this partnership will increase both aspects to provide a deeper healing process for the trainee.

“Since the beginning, we have focused on helping our trainees find jobs.  We are very excited to be able to continue and to enhance what we are already doing,” said My Brother’s Workshop Program Director/Founder Scott Bradley.  “We want the community to see first hand what our kids are learning and how it will directly affect the whole island.”

Please join My Brother’s Workshop May 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for the ceremony, and enjoy refreshments provided by their culinary program and experience a night of celebration.
