A key component of the YouthForce NOLA strategy is to build the capacity of schools so that students graduate ready for post-secondary success, including not only college-ready academic skills, but also soft skills, technical skills, and work experience. YouthForce NOLA works closely with open-enrollment public high schools in Orleans Parish, offering training, planning tools, and industry exposure to all school teams and a deeper set of supports to partner schools, including coaching and technical assistance, grant funding, paid internships for seniors, externships for educators, and more.
