New Workforce Development Initiative for Opportunity Youth


Thanks to support from Associated Black Charities and the Baltimore Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, at least twenty Baltimore youth will be introduced to the fields of deconstruction, retail, transportation and warehousing at Second Chance.

“Introduction to the Workforce” is a 12-week, full-time, paid internship. It includes classroom and hands-on training in job and life skills, as well as industry-recognized certifications in forklift operation and workplace safety.

Program participants are “Opportunity Youth” ages 18 – 24 who are not employed or enrolled in school.  Several members of our first cohort of interns came to us through a program for homeless youth or a halfway house for youthful offenders. When you support us, you support them!
