Youth Education and Employment Program
Home Base YK has run an education and employment program for many years. This year, the organization is working to improve the program by having an in-house teacher. This will increase the education outcomes for youth who are or have experienced homelessness and need more one on one support to meet their educational goals than can be offered in the traditional education system.
Why is this program important?
Education is a major key to opportunity, and employment is a major key to independent living. By supporting youth to reach their goals, focus on achievements, and address the barriers that have held them back in reaching these goals in the past, Home Base YK can support youth to be as successful as possible and attain life long success.
Who is this program for?
This program is for youth aged 12 - 24 who live in the Home Base Youth Dorms, as well as for any youth who attends the Youth Centre.
Home Base YK is pursuing funding from the Department of Education, Culture, and Employment for this program for 2021-2022.
