We provide technical and business development training for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who have recently been released from prison, are disadvantaged economically, socially, psychologically and/or geographically, or are at-risk. We don't just teach the skills, we train the mind. Our young people are valuable. They need to believe that.
Support - Mentoring - Counseling
We are a non-profit organization that provides an innovative and revolutionary training and education program for disadvantaged and urban young people. We provide the skills and tools to build them into successful owners, independent contractors and employees.
Not just Life skills, but skills for life. It is here that we begin to develop an entrepreneurial focus in our youth. Regardless of where they are or have been, we emphasize the value of today. We work to reset the psyche of the troubled youth. We target probation youth in or transitioning from foster care, to provide essential training in and attendance to their personal development. At iTouchUp, a diploma is the rule, not the exception. We set a high bar for our participants because we believe they are capable.
We enroll young adults in reentry, 18-25, in the vocational certification program of their choice at Trade Tech College.
