Education and Youth Development

The Education & Youth Development (EYD) program is designed to help young people take control of their own educational outcomes.Education has an enormous impact on society and is more essential to a high quality of life than any other single factor. Although education is not the only indicator of opportunity, a lack of education and connection to the workforce translates into significant earning differences among individuals. Many barriers exist that prevent these students from excelling in their studies and pursuing the American dream of attaining higher education, and scoring the perfect career.Project Ready: Middle School Transition (PRMST) includes the following components: Academic Achievement, Social Development, Computer Literacy and College Awareness. Utilizing research and evidence based curricula, including the National Urban League’s Project Ready, SkillsTutor, ACT benchmarks and practice tests, PRMST helps prepare students for success in middle school, and helps prepare them for a smooth transition to high school.Project STEM ensures urban students have the necessary supports and opportunities available to them to succeed in STEM related class work, and exposing students to STEM careers. Depending on the grade level, students complete individual and group activities to explore the weekly topics.Project Ready: Post-Secondary Success includes: Academic Achievement; Social Development; Leadership Development, and College Cultural and Awareness. The program emphasizes study skills, critical thinking, test taking skills and includes the use of culturally relevant resources, field trips and college tours.

Population(s) Served

The Memphis Urban League's Department of Workforce & Economic Development was designed to address the employment needs of two constituencies--skilled workers who seek assistance in securing job opportunities and employers who need qualified applicants to fill job vacancies within the Memphis metropolitan statistical area. Through a series of professional development workshops and innovative projects and events, such as job fairs, specialized recruitment sessions, and networking opportunities, the Department of Workforce and Economic Development assists individuals in creating meaningful professional contacts that enhance their marketability and ultimately assist them in securing employment while simultaneously serving as an invaluable recruitment source to local companies.
