Introducing the ACT Youth Jobs and Leadership Program - a transformative journey designed to equip young minds with the essential skills and knowledge needed to excel in both their professional and educational pursuits. With our comprehensive 13-week financial literacy workshops led by expert mentors, we aim to empower our youth to make informed financial decisions and secure their future.

Our unique program goes beyond classroom learning, offering 1.1 coaching sessions tailored to each individual's goals and dreams. Our trained staff mentors will guide and support participants, providing personalized guidance to help them unleash their true potential.

But we don't stop there. We understand that true empowerment requires addressing broader challenges faced by our youth and their families. That's why our program includes wrap-around services to minimize financial and housing insecurities. By creating a nurturing environment, we ensure our youth can focus on their growth and development.

ACT Youth Jobs and Leadership Program is more than just a curriculum; it's a life-changing experience. Through volunteerism and service learning opportunities, participants develop leadership skills and cultivate a sense of social responsibility. Our program also provides job placement assistance, bridging the gap between talent and opportunity.

At the heart of our initiative lies a commitment to building a supportive network of like-minded friends and partners. This lifelong bond fosters collaboration, encouragement, and endless possibilities.

Join us in shaping the future leaders of tomorrow - together, we can unlock the potential of our youth, creating a brighter, more empowered generation. Enroll in the ACT Youth Jobs and Leadership Program today and embark on a journey of self-discovery and success!"

We welcomed some of our youth participants for the Summer 2023 cohort. It was an exciting event filled with special guests and sponsored by some of our local business owners. Our youth had a chance to get to know one another a little deeper while parents and guardians were able to interact with staff and fellow parents. Stay tuned to learn how you can support our youth through donations and more as we launch our YLP Fundraiser to further support our YLP members.
