ALSO is excited to announce that the Community Violence Prevention Program (CVVP) will begin connecting youth with employer's through its Youth Employment Program. The Youth Employment Program is just one of the pro-social opportunities CVPP provides to youth and parents in underserved communities. During the program, youth receive job training, mentoring, and are paid through the YEP program. In addition, youth are matched with the proper employer according to their interests and skills. Youth in the program have weekly meetings with their mentor in order to support and facilitate their professional and personal growth.
The CVPP program works to empower youth with job training, strengthen social skills, and increase parent leadership within communities. CVPP’s YEP program connects businesses and organizations with the next generation of talented and diverse young workers.
