On the job training
The Community Safety Initiative provides an eight-week career exploration summer program to prepare youth for opportunities in multiple industries. In addition to training and leadership development, selected candidates will receive mentorship, meals and snacks, and stipends for their work on projects.
The projects seek to address specific identified community challenges and provide an opportunity for youth to learn crucial skills. Keeping youth engaged during the summer months decreases the possibility of summer learning loss and keeps them focused on positive, educational activities.
