Hands-on job readiness program

Our Youth Job Readiness training program provides refugee and newly-arrived immigrant youth ages 15-18 with employment skills. Participants will learn practical skills such as, resume building, financial literacy, practice mock interviews, and learn about on-the-job etiquette through internships at Beautiful Day and other community partners.

To date, we’ve worked with nearly 120 refugees representing 14 nationalities and 20 ethnicities, including many with no first-language literacy. We offer training for both refugee adults and youth at multiple levels, though our priority is those facing the most significant job-entry barriers.

Almost all of our staff are themselves former refugees who understand the challenges. Over 70% of our graduates move on to permanent jobs, providing for their families, contributing to the economy and enriching their communities with their determination and resilience.
