The Empowered Youth Job Training & Employment Program
Phase 1: Preparation for Success
- Human Development & Communication: Empowered Youth will be working with a Ph.D in Psychology and an education specialist in communication to work with students to identify their strengths/weaknesses, and developing the skills they need to amplify their strengths and fortify their weaknesses.They will also focus on developing verbal, non-verbal, and non-violent communication skills.
- Entrepreneurship: Empowered Youth will be working with a local accomplished entrepreneur to produce a series of workshops on the philosophy, approach, and skill sets needed to become a successful entrepreneur. The workshops will be focused on delivering practical, usable, attainable information that will have ‘real life’ outcomes for our students. The Entrepreneurship classes will build on the principles learned in the Human Development & Communication classes, and together serve as a foundation for the next phase of the program: the Career Track of the students choice.
