With solid foundations come more productive and prosperous futures…
The Work Force is a comprehensive after-school educational enrichment and work-readiness program for low-income teens in Cambridge public housing. Holistic in design, the program provides participants with sustained networks of learning and support over a critical five-year span: from the eighth grade through high school graduation. Our goal is to help our participants to acquire the wide range of skills necessary for long-term success.
The Work Force provides each teen with:
- Accessible program sites, located within the CHA’s largest housing developments, which promote strong connections with students and their families;
- Weekly after-school workshops that instill critical social, educational, and vocational competencies;
- A system of personalized adult support and formal case management tracking;
- Paid work experiences with a variety of local public and private sector employers.
