Boots on the ground in our community
Education completion for youth in our community to include High School, GED, College and Certifications leading to employment. To assist youth with barriers preventing the completion of their unique education goals and the barriers affecting their systems, by focusing on individual needs affected by their life circumstances. We learn and listen from youth themselves as to what they need to achieve their goals
Assist youth in achieving independence through employment. Choose initiatives which address barriers such as transportation, adequate skill training. Partner with programs utilizing mentoring to focus on obtaining and retaining employment.
To obtain collaboration with agencies which can provide wraparound solutions to the youth we hope to impact by creating partnerships which address the pyramid of needs (Maslow Hierarchy of Needs) so that Education and Employment can be achieved.
