Youth Connections uses a comprehensive and integrated approach to ensure that young adults who have dropped out of school are prepared to achieve their educational, career and life goals.
Youth Connections, in partnership with CalServes, John Jordan Foundation, John Muir Charter School, Sonoma County Office of Education, and other service providers, offers our community’s youth four proven interventions:
High school completion through an alternative education model incorporating group/individual support, experiential learning, and tutoring.
Work readiness preparation through career development workshops, including occupational training with certification, internships, and leadership development.
CalServes’ college and career mentoring curriculum delivery, including evidence-based curriculum from GEAR Up and AVID.
Entrepreneurial development focused on micro-enterprise business development curriculum delivery and certification, financial literacy and loan readiness access.
