Marrakech's Work to Learn Programs Seek Community Partnership Board Members

What are Work to Learn Programs?
Marrakech operates two Work to Learn programs in Connecticut, one in Waterbury and one in New Haven. The goal of the program is to assist youth in foster care with successfully transitioning to adulthood. For youth to be successful, it is critical that they have opportunities for success.

What is a Community Partnership Board?
Community Partnership Boards are local community initiatives focused on improving services to children, youth and their families, while also meeting the local business community’s needs. The New Haven and Waterbury Work to Learn program sites are looking for members of local businesses and other community stakeholders (i.e., nonprofits, educational institutions, government agencies) that are interested in participating on these boards in an effort to provide opportunities to youth involved with Department of Children and Families (DCF) as well as meet their own workforce needs.

What is Required to Participate?
~Attend quarterly meetings, in either New Haven or Waterbury (refreshments will be provided)
~An interest and willingness to create opportunities and pathways to success for youth in your community

Unable to Participate, but Still Interested in Helping?
Please consider recommending any colleagues, business partners, friends or family that may be interested in participating on one of Marrakech’s Community Partnership Boards.

Want to Participate, Recommend Someone, or Have Questions?
Please contact Gerry Zarra, Vice President of Workforce Development Services at gzarra@marrakechinc.org or by calling (203) 415-7843.
 

Thank You for Considering This Opportunity!
