The Takoma Park Youth Collaborative just completed the “Who Wants to Work Challenge” an employment readiness training for young people ages 16 to 19. From March 4 to April 8, a total of thirty local youth participated in at least one of six sessions, with an average of 14 at each session. Seven completed the program and earned referrals for employment. Almost all the youth were participants in Making a New United People (MANUP) or Identity.
