The Idaho Youth Ranchs YOUTHWORKS! is a new 16-month program for at-risk teens and young adults.
The Albertson Foundation has donated $200,000 to launch the program in Boise.
The program will provide job training and placement for young people between the ages of 16 and 22.
The Youth Ranch is inviting potential participants to apply, but is also looking for men and women interested in becoming mentors as well as businesses interested in being job placement sites and lending other assistance to YOUTHWORKS! participants. Participants must have their GEDs or high school diplomas. The program will include classroom instruction, on-the-job training, mentoring and more.
