Become one of our partners and help us prepare our youth to stand out in the job market! Through our job mentoring programs you have an opportunity to build and shape the next generation of your community to be employable productive members of society and set them on a path to a great future. We have created an innovative countywide program CREW (Career, Readiness, Empowered, Workforce), which focuses on career exploration and job readiness in partnership with local businesses. This comprehensive program allows our teens to explore and be engaged with hands-on work experience, job mentoring and career development opportunities. Youth will develop the needed skills and knowledge to help find, apply and interview for a job; develop appropriate work habits; increase decision-making skills and implement career goals; all while being mentored by a local business professional and building their resumes in a real world career-related experience.
The various programs we provide include: CareerLaunch, CREW (Career, Readiness, Empowered, Workforce), Dave Ramsey Financial Literacy, Money Matters, STEM Ninjas, ServSafe testing, aquisition of birth certificate, California ID and Social Security Cards.
