New Haven Youth and Family Services is a non-profit organization that depends on public support. Purchasing our students’ handicrafts, whether from the kitchen or the woodshop, is a great way to support our mission to build positive futures for youth and their families by helping them to develop the skills to be healthy, productive members of their communities. Our entrepreneurial curriculum gives youth the opportunity to learn valuable real-world job skills while gaining work-experience credits towards a high school diploma.
Woodcrafts, Etc. is a student-run business that showcases exotic hardwood pens, pencils and gift boxes; cutting boards and clipboards; Adirondack chairs; and dog houses handcrafted by our youth. Beautiful in design and function, these specialty items are unique and uplifting, with each purchase supporting a hallmark entrepreneurial program and the boys who are benefitting from it.
