We are excited to provide this unique job readiness training and support strategy that empowers students to be successful at work and at life. And we’re happy to be able to offer it free of charge and with some cash incentives, weekly.
These 10 week sessions program is part of our "Free Thinking Workshops". Our youth can choose to be leaders, leading in positive ways or followers, which is not always a bad thing. But we want to teach them to be the leaders.
We help our students not only make post high school decisions but identify how they can help their community thrive. Through different community service events our students gain insightful experiences in a variety of areas. We hope these experiences will cultivate a lifelong desire for continued service.
One of the best tools to help break the chain of poverty in families is for youth to understand what the chains are made of and collect the appropriate tools to break those chains. Although youth experience homelessness because their parents are homeless, now is the time to teach them how to break that cycle so they don’t repeat it as adults.
LUNCH TIME HANGOUTS
Twice a month John Marshall High School allows us to come to the school and hangout with the kids during lunch. We set up a table in the hallway by the cafeteria, play music, and talk to the students about their goals and how we can help them.
The cornerstone program for Saving Our Youth is the College/Trade/Work (CTW) Program. The CTW program is intended to help each student identify and plan for their post high school direction.
Life is full of extremely difficult questions, ones that often don’t have clear or obvious answers. Resurgence is a Discipleship Class for youth that teaches ways to apply Scriptural truth to the challenges of every-day life through biblical/book studies, video series, group discussions, games, and retreats.
