 We thrive – Young People

(14 to 24)

The Focused Futures program enhances career readiness skills for youth ages 14-24, providing paid work experiences and employment. This program was designed to meet youth where they are and help them overcome the barriers they may face while gaining expertise in the work field.

WeThrive youth identify solutions to problems in their local community, hone skills as they build business plans, and launch real micro-enterprises where they keep the revenues generated.  WeThrive works to achieve economic justice and close opportunity gaps by equipping and empowering underestimated young people 14 to 24 years old from low-income communities to rise as entrepreneurial economic leaders.
