Event Details

We invite you to participate in the Urban Youth Empowerment Program WORKS (UYEP WORKS) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Urban League. The Urban League of Greater Atlanta will provide services to and impact the lives of  100 youth and young adults ages 18-24 years old in the following zip codes: 30303, 30306, 30308, 30309, 30310, 30311, 30312, 30313, 30314, 30315, 30316, 30318 and 30354.

 

UYEP WORKS will provide participants with:

  • The opportunity to build relationships with positive, caring adults.
  • A targeted education and workforce curriculum that builds on young adults' interest, skills, and needs.
  • Exposure to stipend-paying, real world opportunities to gain workforce skills.
  • Linkages to comprehensive community supports and service to address barriers and successes.

 

Initially, UYEP WORKS will impact the lives of young adults who have not gained their high school diploma. The program will then seek to impact the lives of young adults who have had interactions with the juvenile and/or adult criminal justice systems.

 

UYEP WORKS will encompass a holistic approach to empowering communities and changing lives. The core of UYEP WORKS is the comprehensive assessment, individualized planning and ongoing case management provided by Advocate Counselors. It will include GED classes, life skills, career exploration, mentors, internships, job shadowing and post-secondary opportunities just to name a few. The goal of UYEP Program WORKS is to change the trajectory of these young adults and point them towards a more positive direction. We choose to believe that we are impacting the lives of future business leaders, CEOs, business owners, legislators, and congress people who will in turn impact the lives of others. Is that you?

 

If you want to change the direction of your life, join us in this endeavor.  Attend one of our UYEP WORKS orientation sessions scheduled from 10:00 a.m. - 12noon on June 4th, June 11th or June 17th at the Urban League of Greater Atlanta, 100 Edgewood Avenue, Suite 600, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. REGISTER ONLINE
