CELI's Competitive Advantatge Program (CAP) is a goal oriented adult mentor program designed to help youth (18-27) transition into adulthood/self-sufficiency. We work with transitioning foster youth, chronic umemployed, and others that need more hands on assistance.
A experienced and established adult mentor is utilized to direct young adults through the resources needed for stability now, as well as future self sufficiency, and help them resolve obstacles as they arise. The mentor will help them focus on strategies, avoid pitfalls and maximize their impact. Young adults will be coached as they practice making decisions for their own lives.
Our mentors must go through an extensive one day (8 hour) training program to ensure they understand program goals, can effectively communicate, are able to prepare an action plan, and understand the services available in the community for disadvataged youth.
If you have a passion for the underserved and want to impact a entire family by guiding a parent or young adult that may be a parent one day. This program is for you.
