The purpose of our programs is to offer the disadvantaged, underemployed and at-risk youth and families in our community resources that promote self-sufficiency and bridge the "digital divide".
EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION
Training Youth for Success
Training Youth for Success (TYFS) was developed as an employment training (job ready) program for youth ages 14-17 that has been in existence since 2004, which has sustained for over almost 20 years in 2023.
Targeted youth are unemployed or never been employed, and youth who may experienced problems maintaining a job or who cannot obtain employment for lack of basic job skills and professional training.
TYFS provides valuable employability skills and employment training that will assist youth in obtaining gainful employment and job retention when they enter the workforce.
