Youth Maturity Builder program addresses at-risk children

Hayward Adult School and the Construction Craft Training Center will collaborate and coordinate to create a system of training, education, career development and employment services to high-risk older youth between the ages of 19 to 21. The Youth Maturity Builder will address older youth needs from a holistic perspective, challenging them to grow and develop into responsible, caring adults, and vital members of their communities.

The goal of the program is to provide youth with evaluation and assessment, training and educational opportunities, career development, youth and adult mentors, links to the workforce, leadership development opportunities, counseling, support services and follow-up.

Youth who reside in the Eden and Tri-City areas will be the first priority. The program's objective is to increase the level of service and accessibility for youth by developing points of contact throughout the Alameda County so that all youth, regardless of where they live, will be able to take advantage of programs and services that best meet their needs. For more information on the program, call (510) 784-2660, ext. 5431.
