Jumpstarting THE life and career for those who have had a court involved set back.

FUTURES works with young people between 18-24 who live in the City of Schenectady and are looking for an opportunity to challenge their thinking and jumpstart their life.

They will go through our 4 week paid “Be the Change” Challenge to learn the power of social capital, how to overcome faulty thinking and beliefs, and to be the catalyst for change in their own life and in their community.

After the 4 week challenge, they will have access to job placement services, paid internships and can enroll in other SEAT training programs.
