our role

Newgate School is dedicated to helping low-income young adults succeed in their quest for self-sufficiency. A nonprofit automotive technical school located in the Twin Cities, they offer auto body and auto mechanics training for unemployed or under-employed adults.

Students pay no tuition or fees. What they get from showing up and working hard is priceless: vocational skills, a work ethic and the personal confidence needed to succeed in a career. Newgate graduates become certified as auto technicians within 18 months. Then it’s off to work in jobs that start between $25,000 and $30,000. Newgate has an exceptional job placement rate. You’ll find Newgate graduates in the auto industry throughout the Twin Cities.
