About this grant

This grant provides support to the Genesee Area Focus Fund to implement the Summer Youth Initiative which provides job training and employment opportunities for Genesee County teens in partnership with area nonprofit employers. Teens first participate in the TeenQuest component, a five-week pre-employment training program, and then are eligible to apply for employment at the Summer Youth Initiative job fair. While most of the employment opportunities are offered in the summer, the program also provides year-round employment options where available.
