Project Success Beyond is run by Monroe County Youth Employment Service (YES) and the Business Education Partnership of Monroe County (BEPMC). The goal of the program is to provide local area youth (ages 18-24) career guidance and exploration through the use of bi-weekly seminars, field trips, guest speakers and job shadowing. Project Success and Project Success Beyond runs from September until May, when participants who have successfully met the attendance and participation requirements will receive a certificate of completion. It is our hope to open the door of opportunity and possibility to youth who may not have thought much about their future plans, in order to give them a more concrete understanding of what their dream career really entails.
Project Success Beyond is broken up into three main components: the bi-weekly sessions, job shadowing/mentorship, and finally, a chance to apply for employment through our “Developing Workforce” collaboration with one of our local partners, such as Camelback Mountain and Skytop Lodge. After completing the first part of the program, participants will be given a chance to select a place of business that reflects their ideal career field.
