Sky's the Limit Album > Youth in Motion receives 12 laptops!
Youth in Motion (YIM) is a national, not-for-profit organization focused on developing the employability and life skills of today's youth to prepare them effectively for success in life and work. Their programs are designed to provide access to career information and increase awareness about opportunities for youth and those impacting the career decisions of youth.

Opportunities Unlimited™ is an innovative mentoring and internship program for young women under the age of 30 with employment barriers. The program runs twice a year, with 15 young women experiencing four weeks of full -time, paid training. This in-class instruction teaches key employability skills. Upon completion of the training period, 12 of the most motivated women move on to the next phase, a six month paid work placement. During this employment phase, each participant is paired with a mentor who helps her cultivate her self-confidence and prepare to join the workforce.

STL congratulates this year's graduates and awards them with 12 laptops to pursue their academic goals.
