The 2019 Summer Training and Enrichment Program has been redesigned to enhance job training and career placement opportunities for youth and young adults in Newport News. The redesign includes new partnerships with the Hampton Roads Community Action Program (HRCAP), New Horizons Youth Workforce Center, and Newport News Public Schools (NNPS).
Through the partnership with NNPS, high school participants receive support through career technical education courses and industry certification opportunities. The program, which will run from June through August, will serve 200 participants who are required to meet eligibility criteria. Our partnership with HRCAP will help five cohorts of 15 young adults over the course of the year to receive extensive career readiness workshops, soft skill training, and obtain certifications and credentials.

The program is currently hiring job coaches, lead job coaches, and program managers.
