Youth Solutions, Inc. is a nonprofit based out of Benton Harbor, who is on a mission to equip young people with the skills to overcome barriers and succeed in education, employment and in life.
Youth Solutions envisions a Michigan where every young person is educated, employed and career bound. Through Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG), the organization’s premier statewide program, over 16,000 youth with extensive barriers to employment have been empowered to complete high school, learn the essential skills most needed by employers, and transition successfully into post secondary education and/or employment. Last year over 1,200 Michigan employers hired JMG graduates.
Help Shape Tomorrow’s Workforce
Remember your first job? It may have been challenging – working your way up and learning new skills – but exciting and rewarding at the same time. Regardless, it taught you a lot about the real world and yourself.
Sixty-Seven percent of young people in Michigan are searching for that same experience. Youth Solution’s employability skills training is dedicated to supporting those young people’s aspirations, but the course is incomplete without one major component – the employer.
By partnering with Youth Solutions, you’ll open up career possibilities for today’s young people and gain a connection to the youth talent pipeline in return. With over 3,200 youth served per year, together we can make this number even higher.
