“I look at my son daily and I am reminded of all I want to accomplish to provide for him and break the cycle of poverty. The YUTE Teach program is allowing me to go a step further in doing that. I believe that if more opportunities are provided for youth more and more of us will begin to make that step out of poverty, avoid involvement in crime and ultimately be happy.”
- Trishawna (YUTE Teach Participant)
The MultiCare Youth Foundation seeks to empower vulnerable and at-risk youth, like Trishauna, with the skills needed to provide sustainably for themselves and their families.
With AFJ’s contribution, the YUTE Teach program has been training 50 youth for jobs in Jamaica’s education sector. The current cohort of students have shared how the program has helped them in raising their children and contributing to their families- thereby benefitting over 200 persons and households. We believe the same will happen for another batch with your support.
Your donation will help us in providing certification, life skills training, mentorship and employment for a second contingent of YUTE Teach. We need to raise US$100,000 to provide the same opportunity for 50 more participants. We believe that given support, young people can demonstrate incredible drive and commitment to change things for the better. Help us to continue helping them.
