Training and education is the responsibility of the Director of Youth Development who coordinates with the Directors of Outreach and Apartment Support to ensure that training programs are designed to meet the needs of youth served by the program. In addition to the training provided through Apartment Support activities mentioned above, local programs can assist kids in the following areas:

o Obtaining a GED or High School Diploma and explaining the difference between the two;

o Helping kids track down their previous school records;

o Ensuring the kids can work at the junior/high school level prior to getting them involved with a school;

o Finding an appropriate school for each kid (e.g., public, street, alternative);

o Helping kids qualify and enter programs offered by the Private Industry Council;

o Helping kids qualify and enter technical schools;

o Helping kids qualify and enter the Job Corps.

The Director of Youth Development is also responsible for implementing a viable tutoring program, where appropriate, so that kids can get help with reading, writing, and math to ensure success or reentry into school. Further, the director will seek to identify specialized vocational and technical training for the kids. Doing so will help the kids realize they can do more than work for a fast food restaurant or in landscaping.

If desired, the following titles may be used to denote the specific individual’s responsibilities:

o Assistant for Youth Education: For activities related to high school and college education.

Mission Statement

The mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness throughout the United States. We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives

Description

StandUp for Kids fights to end youth homelessness by providing resources to homeless and at-risk kids. Resources range from basic hygiene, healthcare, counseling mentoring, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation to support through our four core programs: Street Outreach, Mentoring, Outreach Centers and Apartment Support.

Aside from these resources and services, StandUp for Kids provides a caring community who values all homeless and at-risk youth. Our mentors and volunteers establish non-threatening relationships with youth and provide them with the love and support of family, helping guide them to independence, education, and self-sufficiency.
