A new non-profit organization is beginning in Prince William County that will focus on non-traditional job training. Youth Outreach Services is run by Elizabeth Charity, who wants to help at-risk youth in Prince William County with before and after school programs, job training, and positive activities. Through a partnership with George Mason University students, who will act as volunteer mentors, Youth Outreach Services will offer training in photography, auto detailing, and other non-traditional jobs, as well as offering a 12 week Job Readiness Program.
Currently, the organization is seeking volunteers to help with the renovation of a property that will house their program, located off the Prince William Parkway near County Center.
The organization is also seeking to reach out to adults and teens in Prince William County who might be interested in becoming involved, or, who work with at-risk youth and would like more information about their programs. To that end, they will be hosting a “Creating Community Connections Conference” in conjunction with the Saved Hands Foundation THIS WEEKEND, January 11, 2014. There is a $10 fee, which will cover dinner. Attendees will include local sports figures, and entertainers. All are welcome. To learn more, or to get involved, please visit the event’s Facebook page to RSVP.
