GIVE OPPORTUNITY YOUTH (OY) A FAIR CHANCE FOR SUCCESS
SOCIAL CAPITAL IS:
  • The Number One Predictor of Labor Market Participation

  • The Number One Predictor of Long-Term Employment Success

  • A Spark to Ignite Participants’ Investment in Education and Job Training

  • A Pathway to Improved Service Referrals and Outcomes

SOCIAL CAPITAL BENEFITS

  • Provides OY with authentic work-based learning opportunities to enhance social connections and practice the social-emotional skills needed for workforce success.

  • Builds reciprocal relationships between OY, key workforce stakeholders, and pro-social peers. 

  • Engages social capital assets to assist and support OY in securing meaningful opportunities to work and learn.

  • Engages social capital assets to support OY after the formal phase of the program is completed.

  • Engages OY in service-learning activities designed to build community and restore justice.

Social capital builds opportunities for economic success by exposing youth to specific career pathways, service opportunities, and skill requirements that they may have never realized were available. Social capital sparks youth investments in education, skills training, and the pursuit of positive lifestyles through legitimization. Through consulting programs and learning experiences, DeJesus Solutions helps organizations understand, build, and implement a social capital framework to improve both youth and program success.
