Preparing Youth for a Bright Future
ABCD has been helping low-income youth prepare for college and work for 50 years through its signature SummerWorks program. During the school year, youth can also participate in Career Exploration programs, which introduce younger workers to career fields and job skills that teach the importance of work and contribute to family income and stability.
ABCD neighborhood sites also offer an array of programs for youth populations locally at the neighborhood level from further job training and placement programs, to before and after school programs, workshops, youth boards, and other enrichment programs.
