Dream. Experience. Achieve.
MISSION: YouthForce levels the professional playing field for underserved youth, empowering them to develop a vision for their future and providing them the experiences to believe they can, and the resources and networks to achieve it.
VISION: Through us, all young people have an equal opportunity to the career goal of their dreams, believing their possibilities are unlimited.
PHILOSOPHY: We believe that all youth have great potential. The power of YouthForce rests in our ability to connect the critical players in the youth employment challenge – students, parents, high schools, youth programs and employers – to accomplish what none can do alone.
WHAT WE DO: YouthForce connects innovative businesses with talented youth who can help move the business forward. YouthForce programs integrate adult coaching and mentoring, skill building workshops and service learning, and hands on work experience in paid internships to develop the assets and competencies that low income and underserved teens need to achieve their educational and career potential. Our model helps employers reach a diverse group of young people, and increases the community ties of businesses.
