Center for Youth Program Helps Young Adult Get a Job & Achieve Academic Excellence


Michael  is a current 11th grade student at East High School. Michael utilized the support provided through the Learn 2 Earn Program at the Center for Youth to gain job-readiness and interview skills.

Although Michael learned English as a second language, he exceeds in his communication skills. Immediately after attending the job readiness workshops, Michael successfully utilized his newly-gained skills and his fantastic communication skills at open interview events and secured employment. Michael received many calls back after attending interview events and even had to respectfully turn down some employers!

Michael is a current Honor Roll Student at East High School and participates on the Varsity Baseball Team, which just won the RCAC Championships. Michael has persevered through all of his obstacles to maintain his success in his academic and employment endeavors.

Great job, Michael! We are proud of you!
