The new Earn and Learn program opens job opportunities to at-risk youth, particularly young minority males between the ages of 18 and 24 as well as formerly incarcerated and chronically unemployed adults.
It is designed to help individuals obtain work skills, set and achieve education goals, and gain work experience. Led by Southwest Housing Solutions, it targets residents of Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck. Focus: HOPE works primarily with Detroit residents, while ACCESS works with those from Highland Park, Hamtramck and eastside Detroit. More information here.
