We are off to a great start in 2022. Next month in March we will have 15 students starting in the lifeskills workready training. We are extremely excited about this update. Donors like you have made this possible These program participants will learn valuable life skills such as interview skills, computer skills, prepare a resume and learn the fundamentals of personal credit. This will prepare them for workforce development training.
Program participants will be paired with a Care Navigator that will assist in matching them to needed services such as housing, counseling and medical services. These are first steps towards progress. We are so excited about this development. I look forward to keeping you engaged in our progress over the next few months.
We started this project because we believe we can make a difference. We are extremely excited to report that because of your generous donations we were able to secure our first order of devices. We have purchased 22 laptops and 22 coolpads. This will enable us to equip our first group of students with a laptop and wifi to be able to connect to learning throughout the pandemic.
This has been a major factor in us preparing for youth and staff in the VI. Our next step is to secure additional funding IT support and purchase subscriptions needed such as Zoom platforms, HS Diploma curriculum and other training platforms as well as to provide training for incoming and current staff. We are currently working with YouthBuild USA to become an authorized Youthbuild program. We are on the right path and extremely excited that you believed in us enough to support us financially.
Thank you for believing in our program. With your continued support, we will make a MAJOR impact.
