TAY WORKS! integrates workforce readiness, peer mentoring and on-the-job training to youth in San Diego.

TAY Works! is a newly launched comprehensive youth job development program that supports and empowers youth to achieve their employment and educational goals.

TAY WORKS! Provides a comprehensive six-month work-readiness and on-the-job training for youth ages 15 to 17 who are receiving prevention or diversion services through our partner programs CAT and ATD. Our goal is to divert youth from initial or repeat engagement with the juvenile justice system by connecting the youth to supportive individuals in the community through peer mentoring, case management and on-the-job training at local businesses.
