Youth Opportunities Unlimitedhttp://www.youthopportunities.org/
We help youth escape poverty in the most direct way possible: through education and a career. We mentor youth so they stay in high school and earn a diploma; we help youth explore career paths of the future; we encourage youth to get as much education as possible; and we help them through the process of applying to college and obtaining the financial aid they need to attend. Our job placement services reinforce the importance of academic success. First, youth eager to get part-time jobs learn that employers expect academic skills, namely language skills and numeracy. Next youth discover that to earn more and get better jobs, they need at the very least a high-school diploma.
