YouthFORCE participants will have the opportunity to earn community service hours required for graduation and personal development.
Youth Development Workshops
Each month, we will host a workshop for teens for professional development. These programs will range from SAT Prep to Project Management Institute certification.
Norristown YouthFORCE will meet every Thursday from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM. We will provide tutoring, light refreshments, and continuous youth development projects. Meetings will begin on October 18th, 2018.
Engaging Youth in the Community
Norristown YouthFORCE is a new initiative led by Montgomery County OIC for teens in 5th - 12th grade. Based on the model of our former program, Norristown Youth Development Coalition, we will identify issues impacting our youth and empower our participants to make a difference in their community. We will host weekly workshops ranging from college and workforce readiness, financial literacy, health and wellness, networking, and recreation.
Readiness After Graduation
Our program aims to ensure our youth are ready for college and/or the workforce. Each youth will receive an individualized professional development path to follow. Our staff will assist with preparing their resume, matching the participant with community service, and identify key internships and jobs similar to their interest. In addition, we will prepare all participants for college readiness with SAT Prep, FAFSA, and college tours. Eligible participants will also receive assistance to attend our HBCU College Tour during Spring Break.
