Programs & Outreach
This curriculum-based approach that takes a cohort of participants, ages 16-19, who are pursuing jobs in manufacturing, welding, HVACR, construction, automotive, or other skilled trade industries through group sessions where we discuss topics to help enhance their personal, emotional, financial, and career development. Participants also receive:
Partner Company Swag
Copy of The Bigger Picture: A Guide to Personal, Relational, & Emotional Growth
Access to LinkedIn, Resume, & Cover Letter Modules
Team Building Activities
Community Service Opportunities
Pull Up Community Events
These events allow self-motivated teens to connect with young professionals in a casual and non-intimidating environment. Both young participants and parents will get a chance to learn about top-of-mind topics, develop networking skills, and build organic relationships in a low-risk environment.
Day In the Life
Participants will get a chance to have a one-on-one interview with a senior leader in the profession of their choice. Opportunities range from full-day shadowing to virtual coffee meetings and are created to give youth exposure and insight on how to reach their career goals.
As TRUE Change expands to more Career and Technical programs, we are looking to partner with local businesses interested in cultivating young talent and producing skilled-labor employees that will be more emotionally, financially, and socially competent.
Employer donation matching, donor-advised charitable giving opportunities, and individual donations are also welcomed and encouraged.
