In 2014, Good Shepherd Services (GSS) committed to create Pathways to Success for Opportunity Youth ,a comprehensive training program for 150 disconnected youth, ages 16-24, who are not in school or working in three high-poverty communities: Red Hook and Bedford-Stuyvesant (Brooklyn), and Fordham/Kingsbridge (Bronx). The program will include job readiness training, academic support, paid internships, counseling, entrepreneurial opportunities, and coursework for certification in high demand industries. Participants will graduate from the program with the hard and soft skills needed to complete secondary education and secure employment that will pay a living wage in high growth industries.
