3 Ways YOU Can Support A Youth!

Sponsor a Youth - $880

A commitment of sponsoring a job will allow one high school youth to be employed at a local non-profit agency. The position will be part-time over a 4 week period during the summer. Your commitment will allow a youth to be mentored and gain invaluable work skills, which will lead to positive future opportunities.

Hire a Youth - $880

A commitment to hire a youth provides a wonderful opportunity to mentor youth in our community in employment and job skills. You will directly be a part of opening up future opportunities for teens. Employment for the youth will be part-time over 4 consecutive weeks during the summer. Many local employers find the opportunity so rewarding that they continue to hire a youth every year or even hire the youth onto their work force permanently.

Donate to Support a Youth

A commitment to make a contribution toward supporting a youth, in the amount of your choice, will be combined with other community donations to sponsor a youth to work at a local non-profit. The position will be part-time over a 4 week period during the summer. Your commitment will allow a youth to be mentored and gain invaluable work skills, which will lead to positive future opportunities.
