New Hope For Young Job Seekers

Young people need more than just hope in finding work. So Omaha’s Hope Center is constructing a job training center at its north Omaha campus.

Hope Center mentors and tutors more than one thousand young people a year. Its high school graduation rate is nearly 97 percent with 67 percent of kids going on to college.

But many young people need help finding and keeping a job. The three million dollar addition will help in that cause.

Hope Center student Precious Temple said, " Kids need to know these things and need to learn how to keep a job and be great employees."

Hope center board president Mike Homa said businesses in the metro area will hire young people from the program.
