We are youth advocates for unemployed young adults and at-risk youth



Our purpose is to teach youth through individual empowerment toward self-improvement in personal, social, academic, vocational and economic skills which would nurture a positive growth in spirituality, responsibility, education, work relations, and family structure. Our goals is to effectively modify behavior patterns, decrea

se, increase young adult’s ability to create jobs and increase young adult’s wiliness to serve their communities collectively
• To observe and document the strengths and positive attributes in our youth through case-management
• To direct those strengths and attributes toward youth leadership in our network of activities. Our objective is to establish an active presents in underprivileged communities for our programs to function and be self-sufficient. Needs Assessment

There have been growing concerns about youth unemployment across the country. Teen unemployment is at a record high, and every summer in Chicago there is a dire concern about the raise in violence soon after the school season ends, while unemployed teens embrace their idleness of time. Besides idled time and unemployment, there are other variables that our youth are confronted with that are wounds without band-aids. Variables that consist to be etched in stone among underprivileged black communities and socioeconomic deprivation are, low self esteem, lack of positive adult male role models, low academic achievement, high number of female-headed households and family disengagement. Greg Rivara of the Illinois Department of Employment Security said current state unemployment rates for teens reflect national economic woes. But Rivara said it’s impossible to determine how individual segments of the labor market will fare as the economy recovers.

“One of the pressures for teen employment is the overall unemployment rate — individuals are accepting and seeking positions that they might not normally do in more robust economic times,” Rivara said. “The more we focus on subsets, the more difficult to determine what will occur because we simply have never been in this position.”

In the mix of it all, Jacob’s Heritage Foundation is responding to these concerns by publicizing this proposal to potential investors and grantors. What we are proposing is an effective pilot program that integrates employment training, job creation, positive youth development, and mentoring programs to youth ages 12 – 24 and a leadership segment to 25 to 30. As federal dollars dries up for the non-for-profit sector and a still-poor job market, it is deemed our responsibility as a community of people and resources to create innovations that will be self-sustaining for youth individuals and their families. We proposal job clubs, culinary youth clubs and YouthBuild Community rehab programs as a pivot point to socioeconomic growth.

“A summer job keeps students off the streets. It shows them responsibility, motivates them to continue doing good,” said state Rep. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/03/teen-unemployment-summit-_n_857120.html
