Workforce Development Expands Using Mentoring Model
“Build trust first and skills second,” is a key concept behind Youth Services’ approach to workforce development efforts in Windham County communities in the coming months. Our programs will offer a spectrum of employment services with a low barrier to entry. Paid young adults (ages 18-24) will be mentored in a cohort model in all aspects of screen printing business. Youth ages 12-17 will receive one-on-one mentoring.
Any time of year your donations matter! Any time of year there are young people in crisis who are turning to Youth Services. Any time of year even a modest contribution can go a long way with a community-based nonprofit like Youth Services. We parlay your gift into more services for young people and families. Give because you can and it'll make you feel good. Give to honor a friend or in memory of a loved one lost. If you're having a birthday or anniversary and don't need more gifts, suggest your friends, family or colleagues make a donation to Youth Services in your honor. No matter what your reason, Youth Services counts on your generosity!
Ben Underhill, owner of Putnam Insurance of Brattleboro, was voted Board Emeritus by Youth Services’ board of directors at the June board meeting on which Underhill “served with distinction” for over three decades. Two other board members have received the board emeritus status in Youth Services’ 46-year history: the late attorney Jesse Corum IV and Larry Cassidy, who continues to be a key advisor.
