Summer Future Workforce Program for Grades 9-12
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Romans 12:2
The Young Adult Program (YAP) serving high school youth through post-high school seeks to keep students thriving and preparing for life beyond high school – wherever that takes them. The Summer Future Workforce Program is for young high school students. It is funded by the Libertore Fund for Children. The hope is to build a talent pipeline, from middle school to young-adulthood, that prepares our students for today’s workforce.. The Summer Future Workforce Program provides:
- soft job skills;
- goal setting;
- savings building;
- connections to other nonprofits and each other;
- field trips to colleges, trade schools, and STEM industries; and
- the opportunity to earn stipends for immediate spending and for a savings fund.
Short-term “micro-internships”, longer term internships, and externships connecting youth to area businesses are final links in the talent pipeline for our older youth.
Students in the after-school program are invited to apply for these opportunities each spring.
