Career & WAGE$

The goal of the career and Wage$ Program is to empower youth with knowledge, job skills and a plan for higher education. Curriculum is focused on goal setting, workforce preparedness and work-based learning experiences, as well as mental health education. In addition, we focus on financial literacy, budgeting, resume, cover letter development, overcoming barriers to employment, mock interviews, dressing for success, job applications, job placement, career & education exploration, and scholarship & financial aid support. Freedom 4 Youth facilitates monthly careers camps and business tours in partnership with the Work Force Development Board of Santa Barbara County.
