Focus on Food: Pathways to Youth Employment

Focus on Food: Pathways to Youth Employment manual provides career development professionals and youth organizations with FoodShare’s program development information for youth employment. This innovative internship program gives marginalized, at-risk youth in the community with an opportunity to develop employability skills and achieve their personal goals through learning, mentoring, workshops, and on-the-job training. The manual includes programming information such as staffing, orientation, placement models, as well as program design and policies. While this particular program focuses on food, the manual can be used as a guide for developing other types of youth employment programs.
