The Can & Will Help Foundation is designed to address previously identified key barriers to job retention within an urban community.
Can & Will Help Foundation's goal is to provide participants with continuous job readiness and student support. Participants for job readiness learn computer skills, resume building, and interview techniques. Participating students will have continuous opportunities to gain volunteer experiences, school or work study hours, or probation hours for the charitable component.
