Detail Works

Detail Works is a full-service car detailing enterprise that employs young people in a supportive atmosphere to help them build on-the-job skills for future success.

We’re in beta! Stay tuned for our grand opening this fall.

Deluxe car detailing for social good.


Launched in 2017, Detail Works is a social enterprise designed to help young people build the soft skills and trade skills they need in the workplace.

At Detail Works, we employ young people to give them progressive, on-the-job experience. In our car detailing shop, we emphasize attention, communication, and accountability, and give youth a chance to try out these skills in a safe environment.

When you send your car to Detail Works, you’re investing in the success of our youth.

Detail Works is a car detailing business within Spectrum that hires our youth and teaches them not only a marketable skill, but the soft skills of how to find work, how to speak to a boss and customers, how to stay in a job even when you’re tired and you’re bored of it.
