Our unique program gives struggling youth an opportunity for a bright future they may not receive elsewhere in the community. Youth will learn how to support themselves financially, gain new skills, discover their strengths, work on their confidence and break through other employment barriers.
The more youth who go through this program, the more positive impact we can have when they return to their old environment that led them to Rawhide in the first place.
Our supporters’ financial commitment and personal involvement are key to making this program possible each semester for our youth!
It is not only a great financial investment for a philanthropic heart, but it also has a positive, long-term impact on our local communities. Youth who complete our courses will leave Rawhide with a sense of accomplishment and preparation for a rewarding career that will keep them on a healthy path.
