HIRE A SKILLFUL YOUTH!

The overall experience with the program was very user-friendly with a great staff supporting the set-up on the back end. The idea is fantastic and allows our company to move forward with our hiring strategy to help accomplish our vision.

Barry Hartman, Co-Founder 505 Junk

The Get Youth Working! Program provides excellent support in funding and allowed our company the opportunity to open a position for a youth and train her to become a part of our Property Management team.
