Young People Shine at First Annual Youth Employment Showcase

Guests who attended the first annual Youth Employment Showcase on September 26 enjoyed learning more about HomePlate’s employment program and how youth have benefited from their experience with us. Youth shared enthusiastically how Sit-n-Stay helped them learn to work with customers, how HomePerk helped youth learn catering skills, and how It Takes a Village taps into the creative abilities of youth. Guests took a short tour of our Day Space and learned more about how we hope to expand our programs. They were also treated to a big selection of Villages for sale.

We had a wonderful mix of volunteers who made the event possible, including some from Intel who helped make our space sparkle. Thanks to everyone for making this such a special evening!
