Growing Teens for Life is an experiential learning program that provides numerous internship experiences for students. Built on our mission set by Josiah White, the program provides vocational work opportunities and life skills development. Our team works with teens to identify and build their strengths. Teens learn and practice work and customer service skills, while staff provides direct skills training, coaching and behavior modeling. Job readiness is the goal for each teen who participates. If you have time, talents or treasures that would benefit our Growing Teens for Life program, please contact us.
Support student certifications. GTFL offers young men and women work experience leading to certification in horticulture, food service, retail, hospitality, and logistics.
Support the voucher program. As significant milestones are reached throughout the program, vouchers are earned and are paid when a teen leaves White's.
Your continued generosity allows students to learn what they need to transition from structured care, education, and treatment programs into the world of employment and self-sufficiency.
Students come to us angry, hurt, and in need. With support from White's and friends of White's, they learn the skills they need to prepare for life.
