"Youth can Do Any Thing if Given the Appropriate Amount of Training and Support".
At the heart of CHALK's mission is "transformative youth employment". CHALK places youth on the front lines as service providers to their peers and provides them with over 100 hours of paid job and life skills training. Our jobs transform the youth we employ because we entrust them with high levels of responsibility and provide a foundation of professional and emotional support.
CHALK infuses Youth Development with Youth Employment.
CHALK's Core Values
- We utilize our life experiences to positively affect the community.
- We are dedicated; we understand that working for the community is a lifestyle, not a job.
- We ensure youth voice, youth influence and youth leadership is integrated in all of the work we do.
CHALK's Core Values were created in 2007 by youth staff.
