Project Prepare Celebrates Program & Student Success

blog53There was much to celebrate this month for Project Prepare, YG’s workforce development program. Project Prepare has served 226 students this year between its four schools (Clemente, Kelvyn Park, Wells, and Harper). On June 16th, Program Manager James Zeckhauser held a special reception for local hiring companies and graduates from the Kelyvn Park community. Among those honored were Norridge TJ Maxx & Carnicerias Jimenez (Firms of the Year); Dan Ray State Farm, At Your Service, Chicago Park District, and the Near North & Brickyard Target stores (Commitment to Youth Awards); and the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership (program funders). Local Alderman Milly Santiago also attended, among many other supporters.
