Youth Development and Enrichment Program
All young people should have access to a safe haven and a place other than school or home within their neighborhood that provides enrichment. Youth between the ages of 11-17 that live in the 21215 zip code of Northwest Baltimore will be the target of Catherine’s Family and Youth Services’ youth development program. They will have year round access to programs that will aid in building positive character skills and traits that will assist them with making healthy decisions while also improving their overall self-awareness, well-being and quality of life. Programs will include but are not limited to the following: homework center and tutoring services, after school program, summer camp, support group for LGBT youth, counseling services, health education and wellness programs.
Catherine’s Family and Youth Services’ workforce development program will provide qualifying residents with resources that will increase the probability of employment. Individuals will learn how to build their resumes, interviewing tips, job referrals, and ongoing support services to help sustain employment. Qualifying residents will also have access to shower and appropriate business clothing to wear to an interview.
