The veritable legend behind the organization, The Youth Project has been developed and nurtured by our illustrious leader, Georgianna "George" Wong. In the past 30 years over 5,800 teenagers have completed the Jobs for Young Adults (JYA) job readiness, life skills workshop and job placement program. JYA has working agreements with over 150 employers and a 95% employment rate.
The program enables all youth between the ages of 16-20 who attend to become positive productive, tax paying members of our society, especially the high risk youth who feel powerless, worthless, and alienated and who have no attachment to the community, no hope for a better future. The program gives the life skills they need, jobs that build self-esteem and a feeling of self-worth, education opportunities, career exploration, follow-up and if needed, referrals to other agencies. We believe when you help young people find a purpose, a goal and a sense of self-worth, the entire city benefits.
