With our dynamic partners, Four Mounds will intervene in the life trajectory of young adults at risk, giving them skills, choices, and guidance through home and community restoration projects, while they discover their potential and map out successful futures.
The project is investing in 12-20 individuals initially, with a targeted population of unemployed and underemployed individuals, adults in need of a high school diploma, and formerly incarcerated community members.
The program will empower participants to take part in or lead service-learning projects that revitalize and invest in our urban core through gut-rehabilitation and restoration training. We will work with our partners to remove barriers to success for each participant such as childcare, transportation, access to mental health, or other community resources. Participants will receive a paycheck, holistic support, education, and connections to employment opportunities.
