I think that one of the biggest problems with the American education system as a whole is that there is very little focus on career outcomes. We loosely assert that if you learn this stuff you’ll get a job, but the past 7 years or so have proven that it’s not true. Youth need more than traditional education, and that’s what Futures and Options offers. They’re a New York, NY based non-profit that “empowers underserved youth to explore careers and guides them to further their education and become productive citizens of the community.” The organization was founded in 1995 and has served more than 4,000 teens.
Futures and Options has three main program areas: Career Essentials (career readiness training), The Internship Program (what it sounds like), and The College Guidance Initiative (college prep and application guidance). At this point you’re probably wishing that you had access to this kind of programming, and you should. 98% of the students involved graduate high school, and 96% go on to enroll in college. These kinds of results across approximately 500 youth annually can have an amazing impact. If you’d like to be part of it, visit Futures and Options job postings on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Development Assistant and an Administrative Assistant.
