Career Development: The First Brick

Youth Overcoming Underprivileged Realities Career Development program is truly one of a kind in the local area. Before any foundation can be completed it requires the first brick to be laid. This program is the first brick in the path to facing and defeating poverty.
The program features a two month engaging computer basics course where participants learn a vast amount of information from networking, repair, security and more. The program is first offered to the parents or adult family members who reside in the home of youth enrolled in our youth programs. In order to fully achieve the goal of helping a child over come poverty the parents must be helped.
During the two month time line the participants are engaged in hands on yet virtual repairs, building and set ups preparing them for the certification exam. They are then tested and once passed will be given a certification.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
