The Renew Program

The Renew Program is designed to assist 11th and 12th grade youth and young adults with the “soft skills” needed to obtain and, importantly, retain a job.

Renew hero

Renew program participants attend classes and recieve mentorship in the soft skills needed to work effectively in the contemporary workplace. This includes listening and speaking skills, professional dress and demeanor, effective interviewing, including mock interviews, and interview follow-up protocols. The program also assists with resume writing.

Through the program participants have the opportunity to attend presentations and seminars on the types of jobs that are available in complex but growing industries such as health care, tourism and hospitality, education, sports management, and technology.

The Missions Center for Workforce Development assists Renew participants in job placement and remains available for counseling and mentorship through the first year on the job to ensure job retention. Renew program alumni also meet regularly to share their experiences and form a mutually supportive network both for job retention and for new job opportunities.

The Renew program works closely with the Missions' Catholic Social Ministries to ensure that participants and their families have access to any necessary social services to support to ensure consistency of participation and a smooth transition to stable employment.
