Sponsor a Job Prep Student

For some teens, a job can mean food on the family table, the possibility of college or a chance to make positive choices. The Y’s free job training program for ages 15-17 teaches teens the skills to secure and maintain a job. The experience inspires students to set and reach goals that have a life-long impact. Sponsor a student for the year for $2,500.
