Elm Initiative

ELM Program - A high school youth employment program that offers Employment, Learning and Mentoring. Many of the youth that come into this program have participated in other programs over the past 5 years. The high school youth need a place to learn how to grow employment skills and have an income.

The ELM Program takes advantage of our existing relationships with many youth and young adults to provide job training that will bridge them to the working world.  Many of our youth do not have the basic skills to make it in any job environment, and we can build off of the trust that we have to bring them to a place where they can succeed.  Our program operates in four stages:

1) We start with a pre-existing base of a mentoring and trust relationship

2) Staff teach basic workplace skills

3) Youth work in one of our in house work ventures learning basic job skills with staff whom they know and trust

4) Youth are bridged into a position with a partner company where they perform the skills they have learned working for our programs, supervised by a new manager, and mentored by the staff worker they have known by years

The ELM program currently operates programs in the following areas: restaurant/catering, construction, maintenance/landscaping, housekeeping.
