Workforce Development & Social Enterprise
The Workforce Development and Social Enterprise program provides youth most in need the opportunity to gain valuable job skills and real earnings to help them pursue positive life choices. While in the program, participants develop healthy life skills, job readiness skills, industry specific (hard) skills, and financial literacy skills that prepare them for professional and personal pursuits beyond UTEC. Knowing that the youth we work with have a number of life challenges to surmount, we offer them multiple chances to excel in the program.
The Workforce Development program features industry-specific social enterprises that operate as mini-businesses within UTEC's model. The enterprises increase UTEC's fiscal sustainability by generating earned income while simultaneously providing invaluable on-the-job training to our young people. Additionally, youth leaders are engaged in the building and management of our businesses, further igniting their entrepreneurial spirit.
