Teen Workforce Initiative

The Best Solution to Unemployment



The Teen Workforce Initiative is a collaboration between St. Joseph the Worker and Dress for Success Phoenix to help teens and young adults become employable and employed, so that they never fall into the troubling demographic of disconnected youth. Together, we go into high schools, colleges and other locations where young people are served, meeting them where they are already comfortable. We give them access to resources that will make them more workforce-ready and better long-term employees. Our mission is to enhance the likelihood of early success in young adulthood and creating a difference for their futures.
