Workforce Development Programming for Teens

Our youth programming is award-winning! Since 2015, we've provided programming directly to more than 600 children, teens and young adults (and counting!). ​We utilize a strengths-based positive youth development framework designed to integrate three protective factors that research has shown to help youth thrive:

1. Positive Relationships between youth and adults and youth and their peers;

2. Clear, fair and high expectations; and

3. Opportunities to navigate, connect and be productive.

Our summer and afterschool jobs are designed to help teens develop workforce development skills and work history. Research show that more teens are employed as teens the more employable they are as adults.
Some of our summer and afterschool jobs include:
Play Captain Initiative
Safety Captain Initiative
Little Library Stewards
Lifeguard Certification

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 03/09/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • 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 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.
