Workforce Development

MEFIYI utilizes curriculum that state, county and other local agencies who provide job-career training opportunities specifically for ages 18-24. Our programs initiates training earlier with ages 12-18 years old. (REWARD Club link) Early age training begins in middle school and helps students learn and experience their career interests. Defining career interests, at an earlier age, helps youth with the following:

* Understand the importance of educating themselves
* Building career relationships with the business community.

We work with community and business partners who assist in providing internships by age 16.  Ultimately, we assist either providing an opportunity for full time employment or college-vocational financial aid once members become high school graduates.
