Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 10.07.32 AMThis week, Employment Coordinators will introduce YouthWorks’ Individualized Development Plan (IDP) to interns. Interns will use the IDP to help set specific, short term goals during their internships. Previous interns have set goals that included raising their GPA, researching college options, and getting their drivers license.

Employment Coordinators and YLT members will periodically review these goals with interns to offer support and services that aid youth in reaching their goals. Employment Coordinators hope that by teaching youth strategies to set goals now that they are able to use these methods in the future.
