Service Works is a groundbreaking, national program that uses community engagement and volunteer services as a strategy to help undeserved youth and young adults (11-24) develop the skills they need to reach their college and career goals.
1 on 1 Training – Each participant (“Service Scholar”) is partnered with a mentor (“Service Coach”), who actively helps them articulate and accomplishes their goals.
Boot camps – During our one day boot camps, participants engage in sessions to develop workshops skills, and expand their networks. At the end, scholars work together to complete a service project.
The goal is that the combination of these elements will help to unlock the American dream for a generation of inner-city youth and young adults who face unemployment rates in excess of 15%.
