Securing a job today is difficult enough. Pile on the stress of keeping up in school while dealing with unbearable living conditions, and you can see why opportunities slip away. That’s where we – and you – come in.
The Door is here for youth who are motivated and ready to take the next step in their career. Take Renika – a busy young woman working towards her Associates Degree. Renika’s home life became intolerable and she had nowhere to go. She came to The Door for a shelter referral, and staff soon saw how motivated she was to make a better life. They connected her to an internship opportunity while working to stabilize her housing.
The Door’s internships are just the starting point for young people like Renika. Here they can also find support obtaining a High School/GED Diploma, enrolling in college, and obtaining a part-time or full-time job.
While in The Door’s Young Adult Internship Program, Renika can spend her time running between school, her internship and workforce development classes at The Door. And she loves it. Of her time here, Renika says, “You get what you put in, and I strive to put in as much effort as I can at The Door.”
Your generosity ensures that motivated youth like Renika can always find vital support and resources at The Door. Please make your gift today.
