Putting youth to work
An Opportunity Is The First Step
ESCAPE’s Career Connections links youth ages 14-17 with part-time jobs at local organizations for the summer and beyond.
Youth get the opportunity to work hard, earn money, engage in meaningful relationships, and develop valuable skills like timeliness, work ethic, communication, teamwork and passion. Youth who finish the program are more connected, more confident, and better equipped to thrive in a productive and meaningful career.
It takes great work sites, generous donors, committed adult team leaders, and ambitious youth make this program successful and create a better future for all of us. How will you join the movement?
