What We Do
Work & Thrive
Work & Thrive is designed to help both our adults and our high-risk/high-potential high school students develop and reach their full potential. The program staff works with participants to identify their strengths and weaknesses and refers them to educational or vocational training that will promote career advancement. They also facilitate development of resumes and interviewing skills, as well as deportment. Teens participate in intensive weekly tutoring, mentoring and life skills training during the school year and a five week job skills training and placement component during the summer months.
For Lorenzo, the search for a job was not easy. We all watched him struggle, but he never
gave up. We know that his family and providing for them means everything to him. That
type of persistence is always an inspiration.
