We offer career readiness programs in which youth are exposed to various career paths, gain soft skills and connect with successful community members who serve as mentors. Youth learn about civic and community engagement while boosting their reading scores. They learn about financial literacy by taking part in a young entrepreneur’s camp, where they plan their own businesses from start-to- finish.
