Young Adults Ages 18-24
DESIGNER / BRUCE CARTER "THE MAN"
Despite recent gains in young adult employment, the unemployment rate among young adults (ages 18-24) is typically double the overall unemployment rate. We will empower the next generation of industry and community leaders through training, mentorship and wraparound services. We will tap into community strengths to create effective workforce development training and business ownership opportunities for young adults who lack the information and resources necessary to be successful in today’s workforce. YHOP strategic partners provide real solutions. One of their solutions is called Providing Real Opportunities (PRO) that minimizes barriers to academic success. Another solution available to young adults is Pathways to Independence (PTI) which will ensure business opportunities are sustained and enhanced by work-ready community members.
