Partnering With The United Way Help Shape Lives
We implemented the Summer Youth Employment and Training Program in 1980. The Summer Youth Employment Program provides summer employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged youth throughout South Miami-Dade County. We also provide Individual Counseling, along with Employable Skills Training to all youth who participate in this program. The United Way funds this program.
I think it’s important for us as a society to remember that the youth within juvenile justice systems are, most of the time, youths who simply haven’t had the right mentors and supporters around them – because of circumstances beyond their control.
