Help us get the word out about all the great services Palmetto Youth Connections has to offer the youth of our region! Join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and share updates with your network!

Connecting professional adults in the community with the youth in our mentoring program is instrumental to their success. Become a mentor and help a young adult navigate the start of his or her professional career. Mentors engage in a one-on-one relationship with youth participants to help develop their career and life skills. This relationship can also increase a participant’s self-confidence and self-esteem which will lead them to a successful future. Mentors can assist youth in the following areas:

  • Career exploration and planning
  • Workplace Learning and Skill Development
  • Life Skills
  • Networking
  • Coaching
  • Making referrals to community resources

Inspire young adults with your story, and share your insights on building a career. We offer a variety of workshops to our youth participants and encourage the community to participate as a guest speaker. Please contact us if you’re interested.

Some participants who enroll in Palmetto Youth Connections are being exposed to new career options for the first time. We encourage our participants to shadow a person who works in their prospective career field before they commit to training. Help our youth discover their future career! Contact us if you would like more information on our job shadowing program!
