Our Summer Youth Program has wrapped up and this has been our best and most successful summer, to say the least. Not only did we conclude the summer with nearly 800 participants, we expanded our program to include two brand new program tracks – Explore & Accelerate – to reach an even larger group of young adults.

In addition to the traditional Experience track, our Explorer and Accelerator tracks took our summer youth program to another level. These new programs allowed students to get hands-on experience working in a high growth industry like healthcare or hospitality, while earning wages and/or stipends for industry certifications in the process.
Now watch the clip below for a quick recap into our 2019 Summer Youth Program:
Even though our Summer Youth Program has come to an end, we look forward to continue empowering today’s youth all throughout the year and helping them to develop a path to launch a successful career with local businesses. And partners like Florida Prosperity Partnership (FPP) – who engaged 17 of our young adults with a paid internship opportunity this summer – really make it possible to ignite the potential in our leaders of tomorrow!
