Focus: Hope now offers Earn & Learn, an outstanding educational/work program for young people who are 18-24 years of age. The most incredible aspect of this program is that a high school diploma is not necessary for enrollment; those without a high school diploma will have the opportunity to complete their GED through the program.
This new program provides access to jobs for at-risk minority youth and adults who have been incarcerated or are chronically unemployed. It targets residents of Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck. Students take four weeks of job readiness training before being placed in part-time jobs. While working, the participants also enroll in advanced education and training. There is NO COST for tuition, books or certification!
Some of the Areas of Career Training:
■ Health Care
■ Advanced Manufacturing
The only requirements to enroll in the Earn & Learn training are as follows:
■ Be a resident of Detroit, Highland Park or Hamtramck
