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
  • 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.
