What We Have Done So Far:
Since 2008, three years of Summer Youth Worker Programs and commitments by area partners in business, non-profits and government have provided paying jobs for more than 100 teenagers and young adults, giving them vital employment experience and payment for their work. In addition, Open Hand has facilitated mentoring relationships for the teens with qualified, screened adults. It has also provided continuing education classes and training in character formation, ethics, community service, life skills, finance and job skills.
