Mentorship is the heart of Tailoring Youth to Succeed. Having a mentor is an impactful experience for our participants and vital to their success by providing an authentic relationship with an adult who cares. We partner with youth, their school, families, and the community to fully understand their current situation. We provide in-person and virtual mentoring to support their success by developing a growth mindset, building self-confidence, and setting and achieving goals.
TYS brings together employers to offer employment and internship opportunities to youth and young adults ages 15-24. Participants receive work readiness training, including career readiness, goal planning, attendance, and financial responsibility. After successful program completion, participants partner with an employer's job site.
