What We Do

Newmarket Community Partners works with employers, residents and government, bringing all parties together to increase the economic vitality of the district. Our mission is to enhance the region’s prosperity and provide a better quality of life to those living and working in the Newmarket area. Here are some ways we’ve helped:

Ground Breaking

Blue Hill Avenue Station
A groundbreaking ceremony for a new station for the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line was held on Monday, June 5th. The ceremony was atended by state officials including Governor Baker and Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack, as well as the NBA and members of the Fairmount Indigo CDC Collaborative. Governor Baker called the construction of the Blue Hill Avenue Station a “long-awaited milestone for the Mattapan community,” which will “provide faster and affordable access to jobs, educational opportunities, and economic growth along the entire Fairmount Line corridor.” The groundbreaking also comes on the heels of the Fairmount Line’s recent successful two-week pilot program providing free rides along the entire line, which was designed to boost ridership and encourage local residents to adopt it as a way of getting to and from work and the rest of the city.

2017 Clothing Drive

For the past three years, the Newmarket Business Association and Newmarket Community Partners have collaborated with Goodwill for the “Put Your Clothes to Work” clothing drive. This year so far, we have collected over 900 pounds of donations of interview-appropriate and business casual clothing for low-income men and women who are transitioning into the workforce.

In the coming months, the Newmarket Business Association and Newmarket Community Partners will begin offering English in the Workplace classes for businesses looking for help in improving the skills of their employees. English classes build employee confidence, support individual growth, and produce great returns for the company. A number of our businesses have already signed up. We need to know as soon as possible if you are interested in more information about this.

If you are interested in getting more information, please contact us at 617-445-3445.

Great time had at Newmarket Annual Meeting and Fundraiser!

Over two hundred members and friends of the Newmarket Business Association joined us on Thursday, January 12th to celebrate the past year. The event was a great success for the Association, and we would like to once again extend our thanks to our keynote speaker Sheriff Steve Tompkins and our master of ceremonies State Senator Linda Dorcena-Forry. Kudos also to the staff and students of the New England Center for Arts and Technology. Both the setting and the food were outstanding!
