What We Do

What We Do

Newmarket Community Partners believes that good jobs bring financial growth to economically challenged neighborhoods.

That is why our mission is to increase the number of good jobs, the opportunities for entrepreneurship and to expand access to workforce development for those living in the neighborhoods surrounding the Newmarket Industrial District of Boston.

With programs that support this mission, Newmarket Community Partners is looking to add 5000 new industrial and technology sector jobs in the District over the next 5 years.  More important is our commitment to insuring that many of these jobs go to local residents.  

In other words, if a business is making it in Newmarket then they are employing people who are also making it in Newmarket!

These programs include partnerships with The Base, Careerlinks, Morgan Memorial, the Fairmount Corridor CDC Collaborative, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, and the City of Boston Office of Recovery Services to make sure that while we are creating jobs for the most employable members of our neighborhoods, that we don’t leave behind the most vulnerable members of our neighborhoods.

Scroll below to see how we alter the gentrification of our neighborhoods through our development projects,local job training and hiring, advocacy for transit equity, and more.

Ground Breaking

Blue Hill Avenue Station
A groundbreaking ceremony for a new station for the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line was held in June 2018. The ceremony was attended 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.

2018 Clothing Drive

For the past four years, the Newmarket Business Association and Newmarket Community Partners have collaborated with Morgan Memorial/Goodwill for the “Put Your Clothes to Work” clothing drive. In that time, we have collected over 4000 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.
