Youth Development and Career Readiness

The Youth Development and Career Readiness program is an inspiring place of opportunity that is designed to equip students with the skills and experience necessary for a proficient workforce. By effectively training and informing these students, they will have the ability to blossom into an intensely motivated and driven world of professionals. This is possible through the teaching of core professional skills and the placement of on-site internship experience. Empowering students now with preparation and development that they can carry with them throughout their college & professional career. The goal is not to show them how to get just another job, but rather to pursue their passions. Youth Development strives to maintain the individual culture & talent of each youth while connecting them to educational & professional opportunities.
