To help fund an additional Job Developer for the CHNY CovWorks Vocational Training Program which serves young people aged 18-24 who currently lodge within their residential programs. CHNY plans to build relationships with additional community partners offering vocational trainings, and with employers offering jobs within the fields that have emerged as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as within the job sectors that have remained steady employers despite the pandemic’s economic disruptions. They will first match the youths in their programs with community partners who offer vocational trainings – ideally within the career fields of greatest interest to each individual youth. Upon training completion, they will then work with young jobseekers to help them to obtain and retain employment – ideally within their chosen fields of interest. CHNY helps teenagers and young adults turn their personal tragedies of homelessness, abandonment, and/or exploitation into opportunities for personal growth and transformation, by providing them with comprehensive residential care and high-quality support services.
