Who We Are

Our focus is to assist youth with finding and maintaining employment by utilizing a multilevel approach. We assess clients’ application skills, guide them to suitable employment opportunities, offer employability workshops, and provide resource training and educational programs.

In addition, we partner with many community agencies to offer presentations and workshops.
