Opportunity youth between the ages of 16 and 24 have a hard time entering the workforce. The majority of them have issues attending job interviews, dressing for job interviews and traveling to and from potential jobs. Leaders in Transforming Education (LITE) is dedicated to improving the lives of young people and preparing them for the workforce and obtaining jobs.
This Giving Tuesday help LITE create opportunities for young people to enter the workforce instead of being incarcerated. A staggering number of youth end up incarcerated due to criminal behavior linked to survival. LITE is here to help those young people ages 16 to 24 get jobs in their local communities. We believe preparing youth for the workforce creates better opportunities for their lives and families to succeed.
