Our Objective

CTS received $1.1 million from the Dept. of Labor to fund the Project Y.E.S. YouthBuild Program. The overall objective of Project Y.E.S. YouthBuild is to offer Philadelphia’s youth the opportunity to participate in meaningful education and vocational training opportunities and experience that will better prepare them for post-secondary education, and to assume their roles as employees in the workplace of the future. To do this, CTS Project Y.E.S. YouthBuild will provide and stress the importance of a basic high school education, GED preparation, internships and training for all participants, while providing work readiness training and actual work experience.
Participants will be divided into groups based on their special academic needs. Each participant will have an individual plan that clearly delineates the pathway towards outcomes attainment and program success.
