New Job Training-Mentoring for Teens in Foster Care
Pima county youth ages 14-18 in foster care are paired with an adult volunteer mentor for at least a year while completing rigorous job, life and soft skills training, and receiving ongoing academic support. The goal of this effort is to ensure these teens return to and/or stay in school, graduate, and obtain valuable entry-level job skills to secure employment at a livable wage.
The Arizona Governor’s Office on Workforce Development has made this possible by funding this initiative.
We encourage youth and interested mentors to enroll now! Call 624-5806 or e-mail us for more information.
