MOVING AHEAD

THE AVANZA PROGRAM HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO:

  • Support soft skills development
  • Ensure education and skills development are geared towards the learner and lead to jobs
  • Establish stronger connections between job skills training and employers’ needs
  • Work with and serve underserved youth in our diverse community
