developing and promoting programs in six basic areas.
Good jobs with futures require general knowledge, reading and math skills, and proficiency in computers and technology.
Steadying hands, strong role models, and intergenerational synergies can provide the essential support for teens thrown unprepared into independence.
Young adults who haven't had a permanent home, need stability. This begins with a place to live—a place they can call.
On-the-job training builds skills, confidence, and a network of working friends and associates.
Employment provides a secure income, encourages accomplishment, and helps create responsible adults.
With its concentration on improving systems and changing counterproductive laws, advocacy is our path to the future.
