In 2019, EPAMade will expand to reach all youth, including teen mothers, under the new Executive Director Shalom Cook. There is a lack of access to high-tech training for youth in communities of color. EPAMade will empower youth with training in job skills as well as education in economic and environmental sustainability. In 2019, we aim to employ 50 youth and serve 2,000 residents from East Palo Alto and surrounding cities. With this expansion we will connect youth to their talents, to jobs and to a bright future through a support system from their own community.
With $5,000, we can expand our reach and sponsor a youth to receive hands-on job training next year. By December 31, would you please make $25, $50, $100, or $200 gift to keep hope rising in East Palo Alto? If 50 people make a $100 donation, we could secure this position for a youth.
