Career readiness for our youth.
Career Bound is a workforce development program, with multi-organizational collaborations, dedicated to identifying, mentoring, and providing pathway opportunities to guide our youth towards a prosperous and rewarding future in the workforce.
Career Bound strives to prepare our youth for post high school employment. The four main objectives for this program are:
High School Graduation or equivalency
Employment Readiness Training
Work Experience/ Internships
Post High School Placement
CAREER BOUND IMPACT
Our program covers career exploration through a variety of workshops, which are designed to build hard and soft skills, like networking and resume-building, for both the classroom and the workplace. Our youth then have the opportunity to apply those learned skills in actual work settings, whether through part-time employment or an internship. Every Career Bound Member receives career exposure, mentoring, access to internships and work/job experience, employee readiness training, individualized case management and more!
