Your Contribution Goes a Long Way

Adult education

Youth Empowerment Project

The Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) is graduating at-risk youth with GEDs, many of whom have previously been incarcerated, and transitioning them into college or vocational situations. Students are given wrap-around services such as job-readiness training and after-school enrichment that are unique to his/her circumstances. YEP is the largest adult education provider in the city focusing on meeting the needs of out-of-school youth ages 16–24.

Vocational skills

Creative Enterprises Program

The Creative Enterprises Program full-core curriculum at Treme’s Joseph S. Clark High School provides students with individualized, practical vocational skills that can be utilized in any business setting. Training includes: presenting oneself and one’s ideas; ample practice sessions; how to interview and be interviewed; how to dress for interviews and at work, composing resumes, etc. as means to fulfill each student’s vision.
