Transitional Age Youth (TAY)
This project is designed to serve ages 18-25 that have been targeted to combat poverty, substance abuse, mental health and financial instability. The biggest need that our targeted population requires assistance is in the areas of mental health, skill development, employment and housing. Our program is designed to meet each individual where they are with critical case management, mentorship, training and resource referral.

  • Youth Employment Program (YES) provides employment and training services that assist in addressing the educational, job readiness and career exploration goals of our youth.  This program focuses on helping young people with the following:
  • Basic skills training; including remedial education and literacy training
  • Tutoring and mentoring; additional services available to help students’ complete high school. We are dedicated to helping students stay in school, including alternative schools. We help those who have dropped out to get their GED.
  • Summer employment linked to academic or occupational learning
  • Health and mental health support
  • Housing Assistance
  • Job-readiness training
  • Services and activities specifically created to smooth the transition from school to work, higher education, vocational and apprenticeship opportunities
