Jobs, Education and Training (JET) Project
Our JET Project offers young people, ages 15 to 18, opportunities to develop job-readiness skills related to the food service industry, explore a variety of careers and occupations and define the educational needs for preparing for a particular career. We also provide ongoing support after youth have entered the workforce or begun higher education pursuits.
