It’s a New Year, and with it comes an opportunity for businesses to invest in tomorrow’s workforce.
You and your business can open up new possibilities for teens’ future careers by becoming an Impact Partner today. Josiah White’s Growing Teens for Life workforce development program empowers teens by teaching them vocational skills through on-the-job work experience. Impact Partners provide teens with access to training in industry-based certifications in several different areas as well as the ability to earn vouchers that help fund their next stage of life.
A previous Impact Partner, the NBA All-Star Legacy Committee, provided the funds for 70 aeroponics towers. Students now utilize these towers to grow fresh produce year round while gaining skills valuable to potential employers.
“The main reason that I’m here is for mental health, so being able to be in a calm, quiet, at-your-own-pace environment is very helpful for me,” said Lucas, a current student who works in the greenhouse and with the towers.
Your support prepares students like Lucas for adulthood. Becoming an Impact Partner allows you to make a lasting difference in the lives of students who are working hard to equip themselves for Indiana’s workforce. By joining forces with our first 2022 Impact Partner, Denton Cartage, your sponsorship has the power to change students’ lives.
Businesses can sponsor Josiah White’s at one of four levels, and take advantage of the publicity linked to each level. To find out more information about becoming an Impact Partner, click here or contact Dana Brady at [email protected] or Shane Whybrew at [email protected].
