Worth Auto


Worth Auto is an employment-training program in the form of an automotive repair shop for disadvantaged and troubled youth. Many of these youth lack self-worth and have rarely known accomplishment, so Worth Auto teaches them practical and valuable skills while inspiring their sense of identity.

Here's what Worth Auto is all about:

Since 1977, Worth Auto has been helping youth and young adults in Calgary move from an unproductive and often delinquent lifestyle towards a healthy, productive, and fulfilling lifestyle. Our youth work on donated vehicles with the assistance of qualified technicians. They inspect, repair and certify vehicles and then sell them to families or individuals in our community. This program provides an outlet for their potential that will allow them to be productive and learn valuable employment skills while developing a positive sense of worth and identity.

Most of the youth that we work with lack self-confidence and have rarely known accomplishment. They have no positive employment record, rarely have adult role models in their lives, and many have experienced conflict with authority. Youth are often referred to the Worth Auto program by Alberta Social Services, Youth Probation and other community agencies.

The purpose of Worth Auto is to provide these youth with the healthy role models that they desperately need. In addition to teaching them practical skills, we also address the emotional and spiritual needs of youth, which are often overlooked and neglected. We encourage youth to develop inner qualities such as a servant attitude, love for others, trust, humility, and respect that will transform their character and set them on a path towards a successful and fulfilling life. 

WORTH AUTO'S OBJECTIVES ARE T0:

- Increase youth’s sense of accomplishment and belonging
- Enhance their learning of relational skills
- Help prevent the incidence of further delinquencies
- Provide youth with a positive work experience
- Increase youth’s work ethic and performance
- Help youth obtain regular employment or return to school
- Nurture the spiritual growth of each youth in our program
