Mentoring relationships can be formal or informal with substantial supervision, but the essential components include creating caring, empathetic, consistent, and long-lasting relationships, often with some combination of role modeling, teaching, and advising.

Our programs provide occupational skills training, work experience, academic enrichment and life skills training to facilitate the development of work habits and skills that are essential for success in the workplace. Workforce development works with youth to help youth identify and accomplish their educational and career goals. Our services are aimed to help youth succeed! Our staff will work with you one-on-one to create a personal plan for student’s success and to connect to education and /or an in-demand industry occupation. We have worked to build and strengthen professional development systems for the afterschool workforce by providing scholarships for education and training, establishing training registries, defining core knowledge and competencies for afterschool workers, and offering credentials and certifications for staff that further their education. At its core, workforce development seeks to benefit two groups: it enables individuals to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for gainful employment or improved work performance in a particular trade or occupation. And it provides employers with an effective means to communicate and meet their demand for skills.
