EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMS

Our Employment Programs

Horizons offers 2 year-round workforce development and employment programs that provide job readiness and life skills training, portfolio development, academic support, worksite placement, and paid work experience.

Through a collaboration with 10 community-based organizations, the Mayor’s Youth Employment and Education at Horizons provides an entry-level and in some cases, first time, work experience and training program to 9th and 10th graders during the Fall and youth ages 14-17 during the Summer.

The LifeWorks Employment Program has been developed and tailored to meet the needs of system-involved youth and young adults who experience barriers to employment.
